Quinoa Shrimp Stir-Fry

Written by

Some Quinoa basics:

  • 1 cup raw quinoa = 3 cups cooked quinoa
  • Quinoa cooks in approximately 20 minutes
  • Rinse your quinoa before and allow enough time for it to drain completely
  • Medium-low heat produces better result
  • 1 part fresh quinoa require 1.5 equal parts liquid
  • For best result, use some type of broth as your base – NEVER USE WATER
  • Allow time for quinoa to cool after cooking and always fluff with a fork

Quinoa Ingredients

What you will need:

  • 2.5 cups raw quinoa
  • 2 cups chopped carrot and peas mix (frozen or canned works just fine)
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms (optional)
  • 3.75 Cups Chicken or Beef Broth
  • 2 tablespoon butter – Divided
  • 2 cups raw shrimp ( Cleaned and deveined)
  • 3 tablespoons Coconut oil (substitute olive, peanut or vegetable oil)
  • 2 cloves of Garlic – Finely Minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried pepper ( ata gigun)
  •  2-3 cubes Maggi*
  • Salt to taste

**Note: If you do not have broth, boil 3.75 cups of water with 1 cube maggi, salt and your favorite spices.

Direction:

Cooking the quinoa

  • Start by generously washing the quinoa under running water, you want to get rid of as much “top foam” as possible. Pour the washed quinoa into a colander (sieve) and allow to rest for 10-15 minutes (this is to get rid of excess water)
