Indian inspired Quinoa w/ Coconut shrimp

Indian inspired Quinoa w/ Coconut shrimp

After a holiday week spent over eating I am in need of rehabilitation and quick! So for this weeks meal prep I decided got whip up one of my favorite dishes quinoa. It is super light and quick to make while still packing all the flavors of a meal that would take hours to make.  I love quinoa because it can always serve as a full meal. I just throw in whatever veggies and or meats I’m feeling at the moment and go from there but, this Indian inspired quinoa with coconut shrimp is by far my favorite. I like to double or triple this recipe to serve as my lunch for the week as well. This is one dish I never get sick of AND I should add this also has also been given raving reviews by my 6,7, and 11 year olds, so it’s definitely a go!
