Directions

  1. Bring the quinoa and chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender about 15 minutes. Turn off the heat, and let the remaining liquid absorb into the quinoa.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, onion, and red bell pepper; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the asparagus, mushrooms, raisins, and ginger; continue cooking until the asparagus is tender. Stir in the shrimp, and cook until the shrimp have turned pink and are no longer translucent in the center.
  3. Stir the lemon juice into the quinoa, then toss the quinoa with the shrimp and vegetable mixture. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.

This tastes wonderful. Loved the ginger and asparagus in it. One suggestion, since the shrimp should only be cooked for a short time, saute them separately and add after adding the quinoa. I found it difficult to cook the shrimp evenly with all the other ingredients. The added reward - it is very healthy too! Thanks Diego782.

This is a terrific recipe: beautifully colored, easy, and healthy (with one small change). Like another reviewer, we only used half of the shrimp required and it was still more than enough-I was thrilled because it made the recipe healthier and more economical. I also omitted the raisins because my kids dislike "cooked raisins', but I'd like to try an adult version some time that had the raisins and some extra heat (I was thinking sweet chile sauce). This is going to become part of my regular rotation!

OMG!! I made this for dinner. My husband loved it as well as I. The quinoa, shrimp and veggies mixed beautifully and the ginger and lemon set it off. I will make this again and again. Didn't have to add anything extra.
