  1. Bring the quinoa and chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender about 15 minutes. Turn off the heat, and let the remaining liquid absorb into the quinoa.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, onion, and red bell pepper; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the asparagus, mushrooms, raisins, and ginger; continue cooking until the asparagus is tender. Stir in the shrimp, and cook until the shrimp have turned pink and are no longer translucent in the center.
  3. Stir the lemon juice into the quinoa, then toss the quinoa with the shrimp and vegetable mixture. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.

My husband and I LOVED this dish! We threw sambal oelek (vietnamese chili paste) into the oil to give it a little kick otherwise, the flavors were simple but delicious. We also used only a 1/2...

This was wonderful! It was my first time using quinoa and I couldn't have been happier with the results. I didn't have asparagus so I used green beans and left out the raisins since hubby does...

Great recipe! I changed it up a bit since I didn't have some of the ingredients and I also used red quinoa to add color! Try cooking your veggies in white wine and then at the very end put in fr...

This was really good with some revisions. I omitted the raisins and red bell pepper and replaced green beans for the asparagus. This lacked a little flavor so I added a few spashes of soy sauc...

I was in an adventerous mood this weekend, so I made a couple of recipes that include some ingredients that I'm not too crazy about, including red peppers and raisins. Since the only meat I eat...
