Description

Quinoa with sun-dried tomatoes and feta tossed in a homemade lemon vinaigrette.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE QUINOA:
  • 1-½ cup Quinoa
  • 3 cups Water
  • 10 whole Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Chopped
  • ⅓ cups Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons Freeze-dried Basil Or 1 Tablespoon Fresh Chopped Basil
  • FOR THE DRESSING:
  • 4 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the water and quinoa. Bring to a vigorous boil. Reduce heat, cover and let simmer until quinoa is tender, about 15 minutes.

Remove from heat and fluff up with a fork. Transfer the quinoa to a large bowl and mix in the sun-dried tomatoes, feta, and basil.

Make the dressing by placing all ingredients in a small bowl; whisk together until thoroughly combined. Pour the dressing over the quinoa, toss, and serve.

Notes: Use the dry sun-dried tomatoes and not the ones that come in a jar with oil.

I’ve been looking at this recipe for two days now and it just keeps sounding better and better. Will be trying this this weekend me thinks. Maybe sprinkle a few pine nuts for garni too.
