3. 1 tsp coriander powder
4. 1 tsp cumin powder
5. 2 tsp lemon juice
6. Olive oil
7. 1 large onion, chopped
8. 2 pods of garlic, minced
9. 2 thai chili, minced
10. .5 tsp red chili powder
11. salt to taste
12. 1 tsp turmeric powder
13. frozen veg, 1 cup

Instructions:
1. In a bowl, add shrimp, red chili powder, turmeric powder, salt and marinade for half an hour.
2. In a wok, add olive oil and onions, garlic, and green chili.
3. Saute until the onions caramelize.
3. Add coriander powder, cumin powder, salt, red chili powder to taste, lemon juice, frozen vegetables. Mix.
4. Add quinoa and water and boil.
5. Lower the heat and simmer until the tails of the quinoa appears.
