Last week I stumbled upon a blog devoted to Quinoa called cookingquinoa.net! I was looking for a good quinoa recipe to serve alongside grilled salmon and found this. It's Red Pepper and Onion Quinoa. It was so delicious! The author also has a recipe for a quinoa and goat cheese risotto that I'm DYING to try.
The nice thing about quinoa is that it's totally healthy, as in complete healthiness, and it's a great option for my family with their various food intolerances. Also, it cooks a lot faster than brown rice, so it's a win-win for my crew.
Jack has been eating up this quinoa recipe. I love that it has onions and peppers in it so it gives him that added veggie boost.
When I made this recipe I substituted fire roasted red peppers for the red peppers called for because I didn't have any fresh red peppers. I thought the fire roasted red peppers were fantastic. Of course I get the jar of red peppers from Trader Joe's. That is a great deal, if you're wondering. A jar of roasted red peppers for like $2.50.
Let me know if you give it a try!
