Quinoa Coconut Lentil Curry

In Main Courses, vegan on April 16, 2010 at 8:47 pm

Indian food is one of my favourite types of cuisines, and although I never re-create it as good as my favourite Indian restaurants, it’s usually pretty tasty!  I had some lentils to use up, and have become quite hooked on quinoa after going gluten-free..so this is what resulted!

Ingredients

extra virgin olive oil

1 small onion

2 cloves garlic

1 potato, peeled and chopped into small cubes

1/2 cup cooked quinoa

3/4 cup baby peas

2 handfuls baby spinach

3/4 cup lentils, cooked

1/2 cup regular coconut milk

1 tsp Madras curry powder (contains a blend of turmeric, coriander, cumin, etc..)

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt, pepper

Saute chopped onions and garlic in EVOO on med. heat until onions are translucent.  Add in cubed potatoes – cook for 4 minutes or so.  Add in spices, lentils, coconut milk, peas and simmer for 25 minutes.  After 20 minutes, mix in spinach until wilted.  Season with salt and pepper and serve over cooked quinoa. Enjoy!
