I like quinoa. I like curry. Together, they create happiness. You can use chicken broth instead of water if you aren't serving vegetarians or vegans.

I’m new to the quinoa experience, and I love curry so I thought I’d start here. It was great! I’d definitely use the broth instead of water, I think that added some nice flavor as well.
