Coriander and Mint Chutney Quinoa - Herby, Punchy and Creamy Quinoa Salad that works as a perfect side to ANY main dish or you could totally have it with nothing added to it at all. This is basically an Indian Quinoa salad.
SO before we talk about this Coriander and Mint Chutney Quinoa aka Indian Quinoa, can i distract you for a minute? Ok thanks..AAAAAH where to start? Guys I am experiencing a lot of different emotions at the moment. For one, I am seriously considering going vegetarian. The more I read about the meat industry and the impact it is having on the world (as well as other factors) the more I struggle with eating meat. For the moment, I am meat free. As such I have become laser focussed on vegetarianism and that is all I can see right now. In this day and age we are so so lucky to have access to an abundance of seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables. We can absolutely eat to our fill and more and leave the table feeling stuffed and seriously spoiled. Veggies are ridiculously versatile and becoming a vegetarian doesn't mean eating boring and bland food.
For me, a coriander chutney can bring life to most plates of food and so I couldn’t resist adding it to quinoa and then sprinkling it with some pomegranate. You will love this if:
- You’re craving a quinoa salad with a difference.
- You love indian chutneys and sauces.
- You have surplus avocado knocking around.
This salad features coriander, mint, coconut or plain yoghurt, green chillies, pomegranate and quinoa. I can’t get enough of it, it takes quinoa to another level.
