For a complete vegetarian meal, pair the Green Giant® Sautés Thai Coconut vegetable blend with this easy coconut ginger quinoa.

Ingredients

2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons chopped fresh gingerroot
3/4 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut milk (not cream of coconut)
1 cup water
2 green onions, green parts, thinly sliced

  • 1 In 2-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add ginger; cook 1 minute. Add rinsed quinoa and salt; stir 1 minute to coat. Add coconut milk and water; heat to simmering. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 2 Stir in green onions; cover and let stand at room temperature until liquid is absorbed.
  • 3 Meanwhile, prepare vegetable blend as directed on package; serve with quinoa.

Rinsing the quinoa removes the natural dust coating of saponin, which can taste like soap if not rinsed off.Freeze your extra coconut milk in a lightly greased ice cube tray. Once frozen, place the cubes in a freezer bag, and store in freezer for easy access.
