Quinoa success!

Tonight I trialled a new recipe from the book my friend Caroline gave me at Christmas – ‘Fresh and Light’ by Donna Hay. The recipe was for Thai green curry chicken skewers with ginger quinoa. I adapted the recipe slightly by cooking the chicken in strips and by shallow frying, rather than baking under the grill.

Here is the end product:

The recipe was so simple and bursting with flavour! Definitely a new favourite in our household, as is quinoa – I can’t believe it has taken me this long to cook with it!

I realised tonight that most of my favourite recipes are in fact from a Donna Hay cookbook – the books never disappoint! Here is the cover of the latest book – I highly recommend it!
