Quinoa with Veggies Print Email

1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1/2 cup each of any three or four diced blanched or roasted vegetables; I use anything from onions to celery to zucchini to bell peppers to tomatoes to asparagus
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Splash of olive oil
Splash of balsamic vinegar

Simmer the quinoa in water over medium heat for about 20 minutes until the quinoa blooms into a sprial and the texture is chewy. You may have to drain off some of the remaining water.

In a large bowl, mix the bulgur with the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Finish off with a generous splash of balsamic vinegar and olive oil and mix well. - Makes 4 generous servings - http://www.happytummyblog.com/2008/06/01/quinoa-with-vegetables/
