Curried Quinoa {Gluten Free}

I have a delicious gluten free recipe to share with you all today! I got this recipe from a Clean Eating magazine several years ago (I'm thinking back in 2009) and ever since it's been my favorite go to recipe whenever it comes to quinoa.

Gluten Free Curried Quinoa

1 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
2 tsp curry powder
Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup quinoa
2 Green onions, chopped (optional)

Add stock, curry, cayenne, salt, and pepper to a medium size saucepan.  Bring to a boil over high heat (uncovered).  Add the quinoa, bring back to a boil, then reduce heat to low.  Cover and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat. Finally, remove the lid and fluff quinoa with a fork. 

If you like, feel free to top with chopped green onions. Since I have a ton of green onions on hand (I recently harvested over 200 green onions from my garden) I decided to add some to this dish and boy is it YUMMY!

My daughter is also a huge fan of curried quinoa.  I actually had to double this recipe the last time I made it so there would be enough for everyone.  That little girl can eat an entire dish all by herself, easily!

Well folks, I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as we do.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
