This sounds so yummy to me! Too bad that Richard does not like sweet potatoes nor curry!!! I am on the look out for more recipes with Quinoa. How about you?

Do you like leftovers? 😉

We love using quinoa. We’ve mostly used it to replace rice or add a little more substance to some dishes, so I haven’t thought of it much in terms of recipes . . . but I like your thinking. I’ve come across yummy-looking muffins and other baked goods made with quinoa. I’ll keep my eyes out, too and get some posted on here.

Interesting – I love curries, but I’ve never used mango in one (or in fact raisins, except in one quick and easy rice dish I make that starts with frying up some onions, raisins, and shredded apple in curry). Sounds worth a try!

Be sure to come back and let us know what you thought! I’ve seen raisins in curries fairly often and it’s a fantastic contract of texture and sweetness in the curry. Then you throw in the mango and it’s a rush of a food experience. You’re gonna love it!
