Spicy Quinoa with curried Mango and Cabbage.


 Quinoa Mix:
1 cup Quinoa (I mixed 3/4 white and 1/4 red Quinoa)

1 1/4 cup water 
1/2 tsp Tumeric

Add chopped fresh Cilantro just before serving

Curried Mango and Cabbage part: 

Coconut oil

 1/2 tsp cumin, ground Coriander, butter chicken spice, Turmeric (or increase if you want it spicier)

Shredded cabbage
Sliced onion
Sliced mango

  1. Bring the water to boil and add the well rinsed (in cold water) Quinoa. Turn down the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir and add fresh Cilantro.
  2. In a skillet heat the coconut oil, and add spices, add sliced onion and toss. Add cabbage and stir fry until tender and then add mango and toss.
  3. An optional addition to this dish is to sprinkle with lime juice.  
  4. Serve the mango mixture on a bed of the Quinoa mixture.
