uncooked quinoa, rinsed
1 1/2 cups
red bell pepper, diced
fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
sliced fresh mushrooms
minced fresh ginger root
uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
salt and pepper to taste
This tastes wonderful. Loved the ginger and asparagus in it. One suggestion, since the shrimp should only be cooked for a short time, saute them separately and add after adding the quinoa. I found it difficult to cook the shrimp evenly with all the other ingredients. The added reward - it is very healthy too! Thanks Diego782.
I did not care for this recipe.
This is a terrific recipe: beautifully colored, easy, and healthy (with one small change). Like another reviewer, we only used half of the shrimp required and it was still more than enough-I was thrilled because it made the recipe healthier and more economical. I also omitted the raisins because my kids dislike "cooked raisins', but I'd like to try an adult version some time that had the raisins and some extra heat (I was thinking sweet chile sauce). This is going to become part of my regular rotation!
I made this for dinner. My husband loved it as well as I. The quinoa, shrimp and veggies mixed beautifully and the ginger and lemon set it off.
I will make this again and again. Didn't have to add anything extra.
I'm on the hunt lately for quinoa recipes and since I have about 5 bags of shrimp from a recent sale I thought I'd give this one a try. Verdict: yummy! I made it exactly as written except for omitting the raisins because I don't like them. Very easy to make, healthy and delicious. Next time I'll add an extra tablespoon of lemon juice to brighten the flavours up even more. My husband suggested adding a bit of chopped jalapeno (he loves the Szechwan Shrimp from this site) but he likes a lot of heat in his food. Thanks for a great recipe I'll make often!
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 1/2lb of small shrimp and found it to be enough.
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 doesn't like them. Wonderful recipe and very easy.
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 freshly chopped basil! Yum!
