Coconut Curry Quinoa (Vegan + Gluten Free) instructions

  1. Add 1 cup quinoa and 2 cups water to a medium pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Once the mixture has begun to boil, bring to a simmer for about 15 minutes until the quinoa has soaked up all of the liquid **The coconut milk will tend to foam and clump at the top if you do not continue to stir throughout–this is not a problem, and you can spoon off anything that clumps on top if you prefer**.
  3. In a separate pan, heat 2 tbsp coconut oil and add the diced tomato, zucchini, and onion.
  4. Continue to cook the vegetables on low-medium heat until they become soft.
  5. Add 1/3 cup red curry simmer sauce to the vegetables and cook for another 5-10 minutes.
  6. Once quinoa has finished cooking, add the vegetable/curry mixture to the pot and stir it in.
  7. Add the 1/8 cup of blanched almonds, and 1 tbsp of curry powder and stir until the curry has fully been absorbed **1 tbsp does not seem like a lot, but it will go far!**.
  8. Serve in bowls and add the coconut flakes to garnish!.
