  • 1 cup tri-color quinoa (or whichever type you like)
  • 2 cups chicken/vegetable stock
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup roasted / salted cashews, crushed
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas, slivered vertically
  • 1 cup sliced sweet peppers
  • 2 ripe mangos, chunked
  • 1 bulb fresh ginger
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • Scallions, to taste (approximately 2-3 stalks, only green portion)
  • 3 tbsp. Fiery Mango Pepper Sauce


Bring quinoa to a boil in the chicken stock, reduce to a simmer over medium heat for 10-15 minutes until all liquid evaporates. Mix in the rest of the ingredients for a fresh, healthy side dish. Add grilled chicken or steak and make it a complete meal!
