Cook quinoa as per directions which is 1 Cup of Quinoa to 1 Cup of Water
I always make 2 cups
Once quinoa is cooked let it cool keeping it covered to get nice and fluffy. Than I saute onions, peppers, mushrooms (whatever veggies you want to add) and let them get carmelized. Add salt, pepper, garlic and fresh herbs (whichever ones you have around). My fave herbs are dill and basil. Mix the sauted veggies with the quinoa and have in your fridge to serve warm as a side dish. I also put my quinoa in my salads cold and in wraps. Even great with eggs in an omelet. Melt cheese on top. I've added black beans and chick peas as well, its a complete meal!!
