Quinoa with Shrimp

1/2 c quinoa
1 c water
olive oil
1/2 c chopped onion
1 medium carrot
2 small stalks of celery
ginger root
1 clove garlic
garlic powder
mustard powder
frozen shrimp

Rinse the quinoa thoroughly, then bring it to a boil with the water and a dash of salt.  Once it boils, turn down the heat and simmer until the water is gone and you can see the germ ring in the grain.  Chop the vegetables.  When you turn down the heat on the quinoa, put the chopped veggies in a pan with some olive oil.  Grate some ginger root onto the vegetables.  Chop a clove of garlic and add it to the pan as well. Thaw shrimp under running water, then chop into thirds.  When the veggies are soft, add garlic and mustard powder.  Add shrimp.  Stir well, put some in a bowl, eat up. 


I went back for seconds and added 1/2 an avocado.
double yum.
