DIRECTIONS

  • Start by cooking the quinoa. Rinse it with water and drain, then add 2 cups water and a sprinkle of sea salt to the water. Bring this to a boil, then turn down to simmer for 20-30 minutes. When you see the swirl of the grains, with a translucent center, the quinoa is fully cooked. It should be fluffy if you don't stir the quinoa while it cooks.
  • Make the sauce while the quinoa is cooking by putting the rest of the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend the zucchini with enough coconut milk and/or water to get it smooth. Add the garlic and onion in stages to make sure the sauce stays smooth.
  • Serve the cooked quinoa topped with the sauce alone, or add some chopped vegetables, steamed or raw.
