How to Make this Recipe
For this recipe, you're going to need:
- 4 cups cauliflower
- 16 ounces Trifecta quinoa
- 6 to 8 scallions
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1/2 cup golden raisins
- 1 cup fresh parsley
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons curry powder
- Chili pepper flakes
Add even more freshness with additional herbs like mint and cilantro.
Prep your veggies!
Dice the scallion and bell pepper into small bite sized pieces.
Then wash and mice the parsley, removing any stems.
In a large mixing bowl, combine quinoa, cauliflower and chopped veggies. Add in raisins and parsley.
Stir in curry powder to evenly coat everything. Feel free to add some chili flakes here to turn up the heat (a little goes a long way).
Then add in the olive oil and lemon juice and season with salt to taste.
Tip: For more richness to the dish, pop the cauliflower and peppers under a broiler for 5 minutes until they begin to brown.
Nom nom nom.
Yup, that's it! This recipe really is that easy. Tastes great cold, room temperature or lightly warmed.
Serve This With
All you need to do now is portion out to your liking and pair with your favorite protein.
May I also suggest a dollop of hummus or tzatziki sauce for some added richness and flavor depth.
Not sure what protein you want? How about a variety. I recommend our Trifecta shrimp, chicken, steak or salmon.
