Ginger Coriander Mushroom Sauce Over Minty Garlic Quinoa Recipe

What You'll Need

1 cup quinoa +2 cups water

10 garlic cloves, minced

2 scallions

2 Tbsp fresh mint, chopped

¼ tsp sea salt

1 ½ cups water

1 onion, chopped

1 Tbsp ginger, peeled and diced

1 Tbsp coriander powder

1 tsp sea salt

6 cups mushrooms, sliced

1 cup water

¼ cup tomato paste

Fresh black pepper to taste

How to Make It

1 Water sauté 1/2 of the garlic, scallions and mint in a saucepan for two minutes on low to medium heat.

2 Add the quinoa, salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3 Add two cups of water and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the water has been absorbed.

4 For the sauce, heat 1/2 cup of water in a pot until just starting to boil. Add the onions, garlic and ginger and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat.

5 Add the coriander, salt, mushrooms and another 1/2 cup water. Cook for 3 minutes.

6 Add the tomato paste and the other 1/2 cup of water and stir.

7 Cook on low to medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring intermittently so that the mushrooms don’t stick to the bottom of the pan.

8 Add pepper, turn off heat and set aside.

9 Place a portion of the quinoa on a plate, top with the sauce and garnish with fresh mint, red pepper flakes and serve.
