Curry, Garlic and Ginger. My top three flavors. Together, they're heaven.
What is your favorite spice/flavor?
Tonight's dinner was Vegetable Curry Quinoa. Please try this sometime. Please, please, please. :)
Here's what I did:
The two major ingredients are quinoa (a grain) and yellow curry sauce both from Trader Joe's. I would put this curry sauce on anything...ice cream even. It's that good. Mmmmm...
Cook the quinoa as the box directs. (I boiled mine in chicken broth instead of water to give it more flavor.)
Saute vegetables of your choice in olive oil, minced garlic and fresh, grated ginger. I used asparagus, red & yellow peppers, peas and green onions. I also threw in some cashews. Oh baby.
Once the veggies are tender, add in a bunch of the curry sauce and bring it to a simmer.
When it's nice and bubbly and smells like a dream, stir in the quinoa and top with whatever meat/seafood you desire. Chicken, shrimp or beef would be lovely in it. I used tilapia because I'm still on my semi-vegetarian kick and I eat fish at this stage.
Put it all on a bright serving platter and chop some cilantro over the top.
