When I make a recipe, I try hard to limit the amount of pots and pans I use. I am not a fan of doing dishes and any recipe that uses more than two, I’m usually out (unless I really want the meal!) This is why I love risotto and risotto-like meals so much and this turmeric quinoa is the perfect example. It’s in one pan, the recipe is ready in about 25 minutes with minimal prep, and it is packed full of goodness.
This recipe is inspired by the quinoa risotto I posted from the cookbook, The First Mess. It’s about as far as you can get from traditional risotto but with help from the coconut milk, it’s creamy and filling. I’m also a bit in love with the turmeric/ginger/coconut flavor combination. It’s the perfect fit for a hearty dinner, especially when greens are involved! Read more and see the recipe.
