Quinoa is a wonderful grain to use as a base for vegetarian meals because it is a complete protein. In fact, it has twice the protein content of other grains such as barley and rice, and it is also gluten free. The only downside to quinoa is that it can be a bit bland on its own, but that’s easily fixed by cooking it in a flavorful liquid and infusing it with spices. The recipe below uses rich coconut milk as a cooking liquid and includes ginger, curry powder, and other flavorful ingredients.
Cauliflower becomes deeply caramelized through oven roasting in this recipe, making it a satisfying topper for this rich, spiced quinoa dish. Studded with raisins and flavored with lots of aromatic spices, this dish is sure to satisfy.
