Recipe Source:  Curried Coconut Quinoa and Greens with Roasted Cauliflower


Ingredients

  • Roasted Cauliflower
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil or olive oil
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • Sea salt
  • Curried Coconut Quinoa With Greens
  • 2 tsp melted coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • ½ tsp curry powder of choice (optional)
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 can (14 ounces) light coconut milk
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed well in a fine mesh colander
  • ⅓ cup raisins
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 4 cups baby arugula or chopped chard, spinach, maybe even kale*
  • Optional garnishes: 2 green onions, chopped, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes


Directions

  1. Roast the cauliflower: Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss the cauliflower florets with coconut oil, cayenne pepper and a light sprinkle of sea salt. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes on the middle rack, turning halfway, until the cauliflower is tender and golden on the edges.
  2. Cook the quinoa: In a large pot with a lid, warm the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until it is turning translucent, stirring often, about 5 minutes. Add the ginger, turmeric, curry powder and cardamom and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Pour in the coconut milk, water, rinsed quinoa and raisins. Bring the mixture to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes, then remove the pot from heat and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Fluff the quinoa with a fork. Stir in the salt, vinegar and greens (if you intend to eat this dish as leftovers, I recommend storing leafy greens separate from the quinoa, as the greens don't reheat well). Divide the quinoa into bowls and top with roasted cauliflower. Garnish with green onions and red pepper flakes if you'd like.


What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
