Coconut Cashew Red Quinoa

I am still on a quinoa kick. This time I made a recipe using red quinoa. There is no taste difference between the white and red, the red just looks prettier. 

COCONUT CASHEW RED QUINOA RECIPE
adapted from Dish by Trish

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 shallots, sliced
1/2 red onion, sliced
3 cups water
1 1/2 cups red quinoa, uncooked
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp lime juice
1 cup fresh pineapple, chunks
1/2 cup salted cashews

Put coconut milk in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Once milk has boiled add shallots and red onion. Cook over medium heat for 3 minutes.

Add water and bring to a boil. Add the quinoa, brown sugar, salt, and pepper and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the lime juice, pineapple, and cashews. This recipe can be served hot or cold. Personally, I prefer it cold.
