Quinoa Curry

(Serves 4)

The ancient Aztecs believed that quinoa (pronounced Keen-Wa) was the food of the gods. It is also high in protein and other great nutrients so make it when you need god-like powers for your next outdoor adventure.

2 cups quinoa
2 carrots, sliced thinly
20 snow peas or green beans, cut in thirds
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 Tbs chopped ginger
1 cube vegetable bouillon
2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper

Salt and pepper to taste

Place the quinoa, bouillon cube, ginger, garlic and carrots in 6 cups of water and bring to a boil. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until the quinoa has begun to soften and the vegetables are cooked through. Stir in the snow peas or green beans and curry and cayenne and cook a few more minutes over low heat. Salt and pepper to taste.

Pro tip: A wise friend of mine once told me that quinoa is hard to overcook, you will know that it is done when the little tails detach from the heads...
