quinoa kick: coconunt quinoa cucumber raisin salad.

I love quinoa. I can't really get enough it. I make it a lot since my son doesn't eat meat and I enjoy a mainly vegetarian diet.

I also love coconut. So I decided to marry the two in a harmonious blend of yumminess.

This is what I came up with:

Cook the quinoa in a can of coconut milk, plus whatever amount of water you need to thin it out and to cook it for long enough that the quinoa will be cooked.

add cucumber, raisins, and Thai basil, salt and pepper to taste.

This is a salad that has a slight Thai/Vietnamese hint of flavour to it through the coconut and basil. The raisins perfectly complement the coconut milk.
