A bright color palette of fresh vegetables and puffy grains of quinoa are enrobed in a velvety, rich peanut sauce.
Thai peanut quinoa is robust with an addictive “umami” quality. It’s rich yet well-balanced and nutritious. I would classify it as plant-based, comfort food. This dish is so hearty and full flavored that it satisfies vegans and meat-eaters alike. I often serve it as the main course for lunch or as a light dinner with iced mint tea or lime water.
Thai peanut quinoa is wonderfully tasty and should have a place in your repertoire of plant-based options. Really, there’s not a lot more that needs to be said about this dish except that you should definitely eat some.
Happy chopping and chomping!
