August Recipe - Quinoa Snap Pea Pulao

Recipe from ‘Indian-ish’ by Priya Krishna - Shared by Harbinger's Ariel Belk

Quinoa Snap Pea Pulao


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced

  • 2 small serrano chiles, finely chopped (remove seeds if you want less heat)

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • Garlic cloves (measured with your heart), minced

  • 1 lb snap peas, cut into thirds (chickpeas go nicely too!)

  • 1 medium red and green bell pepper, diced

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 3 cups cooked white quinoa (from one cup of dry and two cups of water cooked on the stovetop)

  • 1 lime

  • 1 bunch of cilantro, chopped

In a large heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat, warm oil. Once it begins to shimmer, add the onions and sauté until translucent. Reduce heat to low and add the ginger, chiles, turmeric, and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, then add snap peas. Keep stirring until bright green, then add the green and red bell peppers. Cook until the peppers become slightly soft.

Increase heat to high, add the cooked quinoa, and cook until the quinoa is fully incorporated and soaked with seasonings. Add the lime juice and cilantro, taste and adjust the salt as needed. Take off heat and let sit 15 minutes before serving.
