Easy Indian Dinner at Home

Miss Yunks loves coming home after a long day and preparing a quick and healthy dinner.  Keeping frozen veggies in the freezer is key.  This meal takes about 20 minutes to prepare.

Easy Indian Dinner with Quinoa


1 cup Quinoa
1-2 T oil (I used regular canola oil but now I’m thinking my garlic infused oil would be delicious)
1 bag of frozen veggie mix (I used Trader Joe’s Soycutash, a mix of edamame, corn, and red pepper)
Sauce to taste (I used Seeds of Change Madras Simmer Sauce, previously seen here)
Sour cream or plain Greek yogurt – optional


1. Prepare quinoa according to package instructions.
2. In large skillet heat oil and add entire bag of frozen veggies.
3. When veggies begin to soften, add a few spoonfuls of sauce.  Mix, taste, and add more sauce as necessary.  Repeat as desired.
4. When quinoa is ready, scoop some onto your plate, top it with your veggie mix, and top that with a dollop of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.

Some hot naan bread would complete this Indian style meal.  The best part for me? Leftovers for a few work lunches!

What’s your favorite week night dinner? Do you have a go-to quick meal?
