Recipe: Savory Quinoa

Quinoa is a wonderful grain that contains essential amino acids, and is an excellent source of protein. It makes both tasty sweet and savory dishes. And I want to share one of those with you!

Savory Quinoa

-2 cups quinoa, soaked and stirred in water until water is cloudy (removes bitter coating)
-4 cups water
-1 small – medium tomato, diced
-1 cup parmesan cheese, sliced
-1/3 medium yellow onion, diced
-2 garlic cloves, minced
-sea salt to taste

Add the water to a large saucepan, along with the quinoa, and boil. While waiting for it to boil, chop onion into small pieces and add to water. Once boiling, turn down so the water remains at a rolling boil. When half the water is absorbed by the quinoa, add minced garlic to the pan. Once the water is fully absorbed, turn burner off. Add diced tomatoes, parmesan cheese, and sea salt. Stir to combine.

Makes an excellent side dish for approximately 6 people.

(This is very tasty when eaten with wild caught smoked salmon, chunks of avocado, and a dollop of cream cheese, as pictured!!!)
