Red Curry Quinoa with Tomatoes & Shrimp
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
cooked quinoa (you can read about how to cook quinoa here - do not be intimidated! It's not as crazy as it sounds/looks and it's as versatile as rice but better for you!)
red curry paste - add more if you like it spicy (you can read more about this paste here)
First I heated up the olive oil in my skillet and then added the shrimp. I sauteed them for a bit and then added the chopped tomatoes and sauteed for another few minutes. At this point I added my red curry paste and stirred it in until it had coated everything. Then came the quinoa and a little salt to taste. You may want to add some water as the quinoa really sucks up moisture and you don't want it to get dry.
JASON'S REVIEW: *Jason had a special meal that did not include shrimp*. As for the green beans ... "mmm I love butter".
MY REVIEW: I loved my quinoa! Lately my lunches have been drawing quite a bit of attention at work because they smell so damn good. This one was no different.
Also, you CANNOT eat too much quinoa. I had to look this up on the internet today because I was concerned I ate too much of it in the past 3 days. What a relief.
