Yellow Curry Quinoa

I love quinoa. I love curry. So I thought, why not??

I thought wrong. The boys didn’t care for it. Except the 1 year old. He loves everything.

If you like the two, you’ll probably like this recipe. My husband doesn’t like curry so I figured he wouldn’t like it but he gave it a try at least.

Ingredients: 

1 cup cooked organic quinoa {follow directions on your package, for flavoring I’d highly suggest you salt & pepper it as well as adding .5 tablespoon of yellow curry while the quinoa is cooking. Quinoa will absorb the flavors you cook it with}

1/2 of an onion

3 cloves of garlic

2 tablespoons olive oil

.5-1 tablespoon yellow curry, use .5 tablespoon if you’ve already cooked your quinoa with curry, 1 tablespoon if you haven’t.

1 cup broccoli

I love easy. This one is EASY. Like I said earlier, cook your quinoa, mine takes about 15 minutes and I HIGHLY prefer to cook it with spices as mentioned above! While that is cooking get to chopping. Chop up that broccoli into small bite size pieces. Next, smash and mince 3 garlic cloves 😋😋 then cut your onion in half. Did you know to prevent crying you’re supposed to use the top of the onion first, leaving the root last?!? It works 90% of the time for me! So, once you’ve cut your onion in half, chop it up to your liking. (The other day I used the mandoline. It worked so well and again, way easier! Ha! And my husband doesn’t have a heart attack watching my knife skills. Or lack there of…) Heat your olive oil in a sauté pan, once the oil is heated, add the onions and sautée until translucent. Add the garlic cloves and sautée for another 30 seconds or so. Throw in the broccoli. Sprinkle the rest of your curry powder on top and sautée until the broccoli is BRIGHT green. Do not cook it all the way through as you will loose the nutrients of these miracle trees!! If you wanna be fancy you can deglaze with some water or wine. Took me years to figure out when you’re supposed to do that…when the pan and its contents are really really hot and there’s no liquid left 😂. Adds some yummy liquid gold if you’re up to it…Go ahead and take a drink too. No one is watching.

Throw in the quinoa at the end (if you deglazed wait until that liquid is mostly absorbed) and mix up. Then hope your family likes it and eats it. If not, I’m just a phone call away 😉😉😉
