Mango & Mint Curried Quinoa

If mango is not available or you are too impatient to wait for a mango to ripen, you can substitute 1/2 C raisins! Original recipe here.

  • 1/3 C plain yogurt (I used greek)
  • Juice from 1/2 a lime
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 C water
  • 1 C quinoa
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted and cubed
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 serrano chile, seeded and minced (optional)
  • 1/3 C fresh mint, chopped

Mix yogurt, lime juice, curry powder, ginger, salt and pepper togther in a small bowl.

Add quinoa and water to a medium sized pot. Bring to a boil. Cover and turn down the heat. Let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit an additional 5 minutes while still covered. Fluff with a fork and cool a bit.

Combine yogurt mixture with quinoa in medium sized bowl, and stir in remaining ingredients. Serve warm. Yummm!
