I love having quinoa for days when rice and pasta can't seem to meet my "grains" satisfaction (yes, quinoa is a seed, however, the texture of quinoa is very similar to other grain food items and works great as a grain substitute). Sometimes I cook it plain and serve it in place of rice! It's a wonderful food, higher in fiber, protein, other minerals and nutrients than most cereal grains.
Anyway, to add a bit of an elevated take on your standard plain quinoa, I turn to this recipe. This recipe is super quick (can be made within 30 minutes) and easy to make. Try serving it alongside your favourite roasted meats (roasted lamb is amazing with this) or eat it on its own as a vegan, gluten-free dish. You can make a larger batch and refrigerate it for up to 3-5 days. Enjoy!
