Curried Quinoa with Blueberries and Snap Peas

Curried Quinoa with Blueberries and Snap Peas

Serves 8

30 minutes or fewer

Curry powder is usually a mix of spices such as coriander, turmeric, fenugreek, and ground chili. It’s a wonderful complement to the sweetness of blueberries.
  • 2 Tbs. plus 2 tsp. coconut oil, divided
  • 2 cups quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 3 Tbs. curry powder
  • 1 pinch salt, optional
  • 1 medium shallot, finely chopped (¼ cup)
  • 1 ½ cups fresh snap peas
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh mint
  • ¼ cup chopped unsalted cashews or roasted peanuts

1. Melt 2 Tbs. coconut oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add quinoa and curry powder. Sauté 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly toasted and fragrant. Add 4 cups water and salt (if using), and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 12 minutes without stirring, or until quinoa is cooked through and water is absorbed. Remove from heat, and keep covered.

2. Melt remaining 2 tsp. coconut 
oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Add shallot, and sauté 2 minutes, or until translucent. Stir 
in snap peas, and sauté 5 minutes. Add blueberries, and cook 30 seconds, or until warmed through.

3. Combine blueberry mixture and quinoa in large bowl. Serve dolloped with yogurt and sprinkled with mint and cashews.

Delicious dinner! After reading the above comments I also added in a can of chickpeas and I broke the snap peas in half. It worked very well.

My whole family loved this recipe. I tossed in a 15-oz can of chickpeas for added substance and protein.

My husband and I both enjoyed it. It was even good cold the next day. Next time I will break the peas in half or use smaller peas. My husband is not vegetarian by the way. He said "it doesn't even need any meat."

Just my 2¢: 1 cup of blueberries is enough for me.

Pretty delicious...I think the sugar snaps would be better if they were sliced. Needed a little salt, and we used 2 tbs regular curry and 1 tbs hot curry powder, which was a nice mix.

Jenn,I have most of the igredients for this recipe, I can substitue the non-fat greek yogurt with sour cream & would just have to get cashews.Do you think the kids would like it?
