So I am on a quinoa kick these days.  Here is a really easy recipe for quinoa salad.  You can vary it up really easily too.  Do different beans, add lemon or different herbs, anything you feel like!


What you’ll need:


1/2 onion, diced

1/2 red bell pepper, diced

1/2 can mixed beans, rinsed

a handful of parsley, chopped

a dash of cayenne pepper

a dash of paprika

a dash of white wine vinegar

salt and pepper to taste

What you’ll do:

Make the quinoa according to the directions on the package.  While it’s cooking, saute the onions and bell peppers with a little olive oil till they get soft, about 6 minutes.

Toss the quinoa, beans, onions and peppers and all the seasonings in a bowl.  You can serve this warm or cold.
