Vegetarian Quinoa CurrySubmitted by: FAITHFISCHER
3/4 Cup Quinoa (dry)
.5 Serrano Chile Pepper, chopped
1/3 Cup Onion, chopped
2 Garlic Cloves, chopped or grated
2 tsp Ginger Root, finely grated
1 tbsp Yellow Curry Powder
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 Tsp Coriander, dried
1 Tsp Marjoram, dried
1 Stalk Broccoli, chopped
6 Baby Carrots, sliced lengthwise into slivers
1 Cup Cauliflower, chopped
*note about curry powder: the curry powder found in the spice isle at the grocery store is very different from curry found abroad. It is WELL worth the effort to locate an Indian or International grocer that sells good quality curry powder.
Cook Quinoa (2 cups water to 1 cup grain), until water gone - 15-20 minutes.
While Quinoa is cooking, steam the broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, spinach together.
In large pan, use small amount water or oil to cook onion, serrano pepper, garlic, and ginger for several minutes. Add rice milk or other milky-substance (I once used eggnog), then curry powder, marjoram, coriander, pepper, salt, and peanut butter. Lower tempurature and mix till peanut butter melts. Mix steamed (drained) veggies and cooked quinoa (drained) with contents of the large pan. Serve.
Number of Servings: 4

I might have rated this higher if I hadn't had to leave out so many of the spices for the sake of my daughter, who is breastfeeding a week-old baby right now. Also, although a 'milky substance' was mentioned in the directions, there was no measurement for it in the ingredients, so I had to guess. - 3/12/11
