I love quinoa and so does my family, but I was making dinner for a family that had never had it. I decided to make it amazing, so they too could learn to love quinoa.
2 C Quinoa (I used half red, half tri-colored)
4 C Chicken Broth (can use vegetable)
1 C Green Peas (I used frozen that were thawed)
1 oz. Soy Sauce (ensure GF)
1 T Peanut Butter (ensure GF if needed)
1 T Brown Sugar
1/2 T Sesame Oil
1/2 T Rice Wine Vinegar
1/2 tsp. Chinese Five Spice (can substitute cinnamon and reduce amount)
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp. Ground Ginger
Sriracha to taste
-In pot, combine quinoa and broth. Bring to boil, reduce temperature and simmer 15-18 minutes, or until broth is absorbed and quinoa is cooked.
-Combine remaining ingredients, except peas. Once quinoa is done add in peas and sauce, and allow to simmer 7 minutes. Remove from heat, and allow to sit covered 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
