Coconut, turmeric and quinoa risotto

Serves 2

Low Histamine



1 tbs extra virgin olive oil

¼ white onion sliced

1 clove garlic, crushed, optional

1 cup quinoa

1 carrot, sliced

1 red capsicum, sliced

½ zucchini, diced

1.5 cups vegetable stock

1 tsp thyme

1 tsp turmeric

½ can coconut milk

pinch salt

pinch pepper (optional)

1 tbs pumpkin seeds

fresh herb / s of choice


1. Rinse quinoa and leave to drain.

2. Using a large pan, lightly heat oil and sauté the onion and garlic until softened.

3. Add quinoa, vegies and dried herbs and fry for a few minutes.

4. Add vegetable stock and combine.

5. Bring all to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.

6. Add in the coconut milk and combine.

7. Keep cooking for about 15 minutes. Vegies should be not-crunchy and the quinoa opened.

8. Add a little more stock if the mixture looks dry.

9. Serve in bowls, add fresh herbs and pumpkin seeds and tuck in.


Not as much stirring required as your typical risotto.
