I am writing this post, eating this very dish!! I knew I wanted to do something with quinoa and not in the regular way I make.
I saw something like this in one of the cookbooks I keep bringing from the library, but I didn't note it down anywhere, so tried making it out of my memory.
Its a very simple dish and tastes great too. Its a good choice of a healthy side dish or as a warm salad.
Here I just added red onion and red bell pepper, but you surely can add zucchini and tomato if you would like, like I said a warm salad, but refrigerate it and it will turn into a cold salad, which I am sure with the simple flavoring of garlic will taste just as good.
This is going to be my final post for Blogging marathon #8. It was very fun to be back and join you guys again. Will surely be looking forward to the next marathon coming in September.
Quinoa is something which I never get tired of and so I cook it in 1 cup measurements and save it for later. When I cook in small quantities, I always mess it up, so I rather make more and refrigerate it.
1 cup cooked Quinoa
1/4 red onion, chopped big
1/4 red bell pepper, chopped big
2 garlic cloves, chopped small
few drops of olive oil
(Garnish with red pepper flakes and coriander leaves if you wish)
Heat the few drops of oil on heat heat.
Add Garlic and saute for a minute.
Add the chopped onion and red bell pepper on high heat and saute for another minute or two, depending on how much cooked you want.
Add the cooked quinoa and some salt and mix it in well with the onion and red bell pepper for about another minute or two on high heat.
Remove from heat and it ready to eat. You can garnish it with chili flakes, if you would like a kick of heat and coriander if you wish.
Serve hot. Enjoy!!!
