Yellow Curry with Coconut Quiona
Curry, curry, on the wall! Who’s the fairest of them all? If the Evil Queen didn’t have an apple, she’d whip up this recipe to hook Snow White. It is sinful, delicious and surprisingly healthy! This is a super easy weeknight recipe! If you have made our Peanut Noodle recipe, you know that we have recently set out on a journey to vanquish our very real fear of making authentic cuisines in our kitchen. We have spent so much time simply being diners and soaking in the amazing flavors of New York’s best chefs. In our mind, a simple curry is something left to the pros. We decided we wanted to grab our new love of cooking by the proverbial ‘mozzarella’ balls and dive into a homemade curry. Well, truth is we didn’t actually dive. We stuck our toe in…this recipe is a first step. We pre-bought the Yellow Curry paste to ensure that we maximized the deliciousness. If you are braver…we strongly recommend making your own curry paste but we are have strong stomachs…not strong minds. We pre-bought and made a phenomenal Yellow Curry with Coconut Quinoa! Feel free to sub for a Curry flavoring of your choice. This recipe is an amazing vehicle for all the vegetables that you can cram into it!
