Veggie-Turmeric Quinoa Recipe 

Print Friendly 

Description:
his dish gives me my Indian food kicks, along with Sweet Potatoes and Yams. This is as basic and easy a stir-fry as you’ll ever find, which includes my two favorite Indian spices: curry and turmeric. Thankfully it is possible to get those Indian-style flavors without the cream, table salt and overcooked veggies and legumes that make Indian food so heavy and difficult to digest- hence all the burping and bloating! I love this dish in the winter and often eat it cold as a salad in the summer.
Yummy and satisfying!


Ingredients:
1-2 Tbs. coconut oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 red bell pepper
2 cups broccoli or cauliflower, cut into little pieces
High quality sea salt (adjust to personal taste)
3 scallion or spring onions
1/2 red onion
1 cup cooked peas
1 Tbs. curry
½ tsp. turmeric
Cayenne pepper to taste
¾ cup dry quinoa
1 cooked sweet potatoes, chopped
1 cooked yam, chopped
Optional: Bragg Liquid Aminos Gluten-Free


Directions:
Pre- Prep: Be sure to rinse and soak the quinoa overnight in water.

In a saucepan place 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add the quinoa to the hot water, and simmer until the water is absorbed and the grains become translucent soft (about 10-15 minutes). Pour through a strainer and set to the side in a bowl.

Heat the coconut oil in a skillet pan. Add the diced onions, and lightly sauté for a few minutes, adding the Celtic sea salt, curry, turmeric, and black pepper.

Add the other vegetables, red onions and lightly sauté for 5-6 minutes, until they become softened (but not overcooked).

Add the cooked quinoa, spring onions, cooked peas, sweet patatoes, yams and stir everything together. Adjust flavoring as needed to how you love it. Some like it hotter than others!

I like to add Bragg Liquid Aminos Gluten-Free.

Wellness Tip
Kale
Did you know that kale is low in calories, and high in the antioxidants vitamin A and vitamin C? According to our registered dietitian, it's also very low in sodium. Kale can be consumed in soups, salads, with other greens, or by itself as a side dish or garnish. If kale doesn't interest you, consider trying other dark leafy greens, such as spinach or romaine.

Recipe
Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed with Healthy Guacamole
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: It's perfect for a potluck party because you make the components ahead of time or then bring your pastry bag to the event to stuff the tomatoes.

Tomatoes are the best when they are in season from July through September.
The carotenoid found in tomatoes (and everything made from them) has been extensively studied for its antioxidant and cancer-preventing properties. The antioxidant function of lycopene-its ability to help protect cells and other structures in the body from oxygen damage-has been linked in human research to the protection of DNA (our genetic material) inside of white blood cells. Prevention of heart disease has been shown to be another antioxidant role played by lycopene.
Lycopene has been shown to help protect not only against prostate, but breast, pancreatic and intestinal cancers, especially when consumed with fat-rich foods, such as avocado, olive oil or nuts. (This is because carotenoids are fat-soluble, meaning they are absorbed into the body along with fats).
So this recipes makes a great team.
