Recipe Notes
  • How to make quinoa: Wash the quinoa thoroughly and then heat water (double the amount of quinoa) with some oil and salt. Add the quinoa in once the water starts boiling, lower the flame, cover it, and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes (until all water is absorbed). Fluff it with a fork.
  • Wash the quinoa very thoroughly like you would rice, otherwise it will taste very bitter.
  • The recipe would turn out better if the quinoa is made a day ahead because it will become firmer and open up.
  • You can make quinoa in a mix of half water/half coconut milk instead of just water. I generally make it in just water so the quinoa is more versatile.
  • Add the purple cabbage at the end, so it stays crunchy and retains its color.
