SIMPLi x Yai’s Thai Quinoa Panang Curry

SIMPLi x Yai’s Thai Quinoa Panang Curry

Running out of meal ideas to get you through the rest of this winter? Worry no more—we created the perfect nourishing and warming recipe with this quinoa panang curry! We partnered with our friends at Yai’s Thai—a company bringing bold and fresh Thai flavors into your kitchen—to develop a winter veggie bowl that combines SIMPLi's light and fluffy Regenerative Organic Certified® White Quinoa with Yai's Thai's sweet and creamy Panang Curry.

Originating in central Thailand, Panang Curry balances sweet and salty flavors with sweetness coming from the tomatoes and pineapple and nuttiness coming from cashews in a delicious puree that offers a unique taste, distinguishing itself from other curries. Panang curry is richer and sweeter than other Thai curries, and more mild in flavor. Thai curry is traditionally eaten with rice, but by introducing a nutrient dense grain like quinoa, we're adding fiber, protein, and other essential vitamins and minerals to keep it plant based while reinventing a classic dish.
