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
Pets and Your Health
Do you own a dog or a cat? Some studies show that pet owners tend to have lower blood pressure, reduced stress levels and lower cholesterol readings than those without pets, regardless of other factors like smoking and diet. If you don't have a pet, but think you might just want one, consider "borrowing" one by volunteering to walk a neighbour's dog or by pet-sitting. These may be good ways to see if owning a pet is right for you and for your health.

Sandra's Caesar Salad with Hemp Seeds and Dulse
Category: Salads
Description: The Benefits of Dulse Seaweed - Dulse is a reddish-brown seaweed that people have harvested for hundreds of years as a food source, as a skin care and cosmetic ingredient and as a nutritional supplement. Available in most health food stores either fresh or dried, dulse is rich in nutrients like iron and magnesium and its high protein content makes it an important vegetable for people who cannot get their protein from animal products.
Scientifically known as palmaria palmata, dulse is a red algae or seaweed. The regions of the northern coast of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans are the areas which are populated with this sea weed. This species, according to records, was harvested by some monks about 1,400 years ago. As I mentioned, people in Ireland are well aware of the different dulse benefits and so do people in China, Japan, Canada and North European countries. The popularity of this seaweed comes from its high content in vitamins and other essential nutrients required by the body. Dulse is usually soaked in water and added to soups, salads, and other dishes.
