Curried Chickpea Quinoa

Last night we had baked salmon in a soy and maple syrup glaze, as well as a leaf salad.  I needed a quick and nutritious side dish that would appeal to my kids as well as the adults.  Upon surfing, I came upon this recipe which is excellent warm or cold!

1 cup water
1 cup orange juice
1 cup quinoa, rinsed
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 medium red onion, diced
2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/2 cup of raisins
1 teaspoon of curry powder
Salt and black pepper to taste.

  • In a large saucepan, bring the water and orange juice to a boil.  
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, except the salt and pepper, and stir.   Bring back to the boil, reduce heat to medium low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes (or until the liquid is absorbed).
  • Turn off the heat and leave the pot covered for another 5 minutes.  Remove the lid, fluff quinoa with a fork, season with salt and pepper, and serve
  • ENJOY!
