I have a new recipe! :) And it's all miiiiiine. I don't think I stole any of this from a Food Network star, or mom, or anybody else's mom. It's mine. And, I think, quite good.
Let's call it, La Ensalata Feminista
2 parts water to 1 part quinoa (make sure to give it a quick rinse first)
Boil water, add quinoa, cook til the water's gone and you've adequately salted the goods.
orange bell pepper
So, a little sautee of the onion and pepper in the olive oil leads to the addition of those other glorious ingredients...with the white wine as the grand finale that semi-de-glazes (yes, that's a word, or enough of one for me). It's a lovely, almost tapenade-ish, production that is a treat when finally tossed with the fluffy quinoa.
It's filling, it's tasty, it's something I invented when there were NO groceries in my house. :) Enjoy!
