Asian Inspired Quinoa

This quinoa dish is absolutely delicious! If you like quinoa and asian flavours, this is a treat for you. It is light, filling and tastes AMAZING – and yes it warrants capitals. I could eat this every day it’s so good. I wish I could take credit for the recipe however the original recipe is from Marilyn Smith’s cookbook The Vegetarian’s Complete Guide to Quinoa. Here is my version of the recipe – since twisting things up is my favourite.
