2 teaspoons Maggi Thai-style Red Curry paste

Procedure:
1. In sauce pot combine cooked quinoa, coconut milk and Maggi Thai-style Red Curry paste and combine well
2. Simmer on stove top until desired consistency (around 5 minutes)

Chef’s Tip:
This dish can also be made with other ancient grain varieties. Try farro for a bigger bite and texture.
