Sweet Sticky Coconut Quinoa
Sweet Sticky Coconut Quinoa // via Nosh and Nourish #recipe #vegan #dairyfree
Mixed Greens (I used Newstar's Spinach plus Power Greens)
lite canned coconut milk
Silk Almond/Coconut Blend (or sub lite canned coconut milk)
an orange (squeezed)
frozen organic peas
diced mango (or sub pineapple if mangoes are out of season)
Dark Amber Maple Syrup
Soy Sauce (or sub liquid aminos)
fresh minced ginger
Pistachios (shelled and coarsely chopped)
Cook quinoa according to instructions on the box. (I used a rice cooker with 2 cups dry quinoa to 4 cups water). Takes approximately 15 minutes.
In a large deep saute pan over medium heat, melt coconut oil and saute mixed greens for approximately 5 minutes. Greens should be wilty, but not browned.
Add in all remaining ingredients except pistachios, but including cooked quinoa.
Cook over medium heat for approximately 15 minutes to thoroughly heat/thicken, stirring frequently to prevent sticking.
Serve hot, adorned with pistachios.
