I often suggest quinoa to my clients as a fantastic alternative to rice, pasta to any dish & it’s gluten-free….so it’s easy to digest…contains more calcium than milk & even stimulates milk flow in breastfeeding mothers!!
Quinoa is also full of magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorus & B3….with the bonus of being plant protein – so this is a meal in itself!!
Here’s a great recipe I found which also includes turmeric – great to support liver, anti-inflam, anti-ox for this time of year….which I LOVE!! 🙂
2tsp olive oil
2 spring onions, finely sliced
2C baby spinach leaves
1tsp turmeric powder
1tsp curry powder
300g tofu, lightly mashed with fork
1 red chilli, deseeded, chopped
Cook quinoa as per packet instructions.
Heat frying pan & add oil & spring onion, cooking for 1min. Add spinach & cook till wilted.
Add curry & turmeric powders & cok till fragrant.
Add tofu, tamari & cooked quinoa, & stir to combine. Cook for 2mins till heated through.
Season well & sprinkle with parsley or chopped coriander. You can serve this dish warm or chilled alone or alongside meat serving.
