Oriental Quinoa

So this weeks recipe of the week is a fragrant Chicken & prawn Quinoa stir fry favoured with Lemongrass, coriander, garlic and Chilli. Quinoa is naturally gluten-free and contains iron, B-vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, vitamin E and fiber. It is one of only a few plant foods that are considered a complete protein and comprised of all essential amino acids. Basically it’s very bloody good for you, simple as that.
