Vegetable Curry Quinoa

The other quinoa recipe we put up has been quite successful in the stats department, so, here is another quinoa recipe. This is inspired by a recipe by my French brother-in-law (Monsieur Janela). I added the vegetables I had in the fridge but feel free to improvise.


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tbs oil
  • Salt

Put the quinoa in a bowl and add some water. Rub the quinoa with your fingers. Drain water. I use a straining colander when draining the water. Repeat, just to make sure it is well cleaned.

In a medium sized pan, add oil and cleaned quinoa. Toast for several minutes and then add water and salt. Cover and after it bowls reduce heat. Its just like cooking rice at this point.

 Vegetable CurryIn the middle of the preparation
  • 1-2 onions
  • 2 carrots
  • 1/4 cauliflower
  • 250 gr. mushrooms in big pieces
  • 350-400 gr. sour cream or creme fraiche (sour cream).
  • 1 can of tuna
  • curry powder to taste
  • salt & pepper
  • oil
Chop onions and carrots in the T-mix. Add oil and saute the mix (or do in the t-mix). Chop cauliflower and after onions are cooked add to the saute mixture. Cook for another five minutes. Add mushrooms, tuna, sour cream and curry powder, salt and pepper.

Cook for 2-3 minutes. By this time the quinoa should be about done. Either mix quinoa and curry together or serve the curry over quinoa.
