I am pretty much down for any dish containing coconut, curry, and quinoa.  They are some of my favorite things and also a meal I find incredibly comforting. The spice of the curry paste with the slightly sweet coconut milk - it gets me every time. I make all kinds of varieties of this coconut curry quinoa bowl with different veggies, proteins, and grains based on whatever I have in the house. I prefer using Thai curry paste but you could also use curry powder as well. And if you like things spicy, add a jalapeno or Thai bird's eye chili to the mix.
