Pin It I'm always looking for interesting side dishes for dinner. While I do love baked potatoes and pasta, I get bored. I had a box of quinoa and had just gone to the farmer's market and inspiration struck. I chopped up some veggies and tossed them with quinoa. Simple, delicious and healthy. Use any fresh vegetables that you have on hand. Next time I make this I plan on adding some asparagus, squash and eggplant. A great summer side dish!
Garden Vegetable Quinoa
1 cup uncooked quinoa, cooked according to package directions
2 cups diced fresh vegetables (I used onions, peppers and cherry tomatoes)
salt and pepper
1. Cook quinoa according to package directions and set aside.
2. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Saute vegetables for 3-5 minutes or until starting to get tender.
3. Season veggies with salt, pepper and garlic.
4. Stir quinoa in with veggies. Allow to cook for about 3 minutes or until quinoa is heated through and flavors combine.
