Recipe of the week: Indian Spiced Chicken Quinoa
I decided I would try something I have never eaten or cooked before - QUINOA. Considering its health benefits I thought it was worth trying and it might be something we can eat more often. I found a recipe I liked the sound of, and after getting some advice from my brother (who uses it because it is gluten free) I made Indian Spiced chicken quinoa pilaf from Taste.com.au.
The recipe was easy to make, however I only used one cup of quinoa (which I had washed before cooking) and halved the stock (from 4 cups to 2 cups) which I think was better. I also added spinach and capsicum to the recipe as it was lacking in vegetables. I think you could add any vegetables to this recipe, depending on what you liked. But I did like the cashews that gave a lovely crunch. My husband didn't think it was spicy enough, next time I will add more chilli to the dish.
