Greek Quinoa

I was hungry for something healthy but not sure what I should whip up. I’d already had eggs this day and no meat on hand. My husband suggested quinoa and it was a perfect satisfaction! I already had roasted red peppers I’d done up earlier in the week and I tend to slice cherry tomatoes in half and start roasted whenever I’m cooking in the kitchen. Both added a great sweetness to this meal.

  • quinoa (raw 1/2 which expanded to about 2 cups or more)
  • 1/2 roasted red pepper
  • 10 roasted tomatoes
  • 1/2 diced green pepper
  • lots of diced feta
  • 12 black olives (hand pitted. I LOVE this tool – it doubles as a cherry pitter and works great)
  • 1/2 cucumber (peeled and quartered)

My roasted red pepper was in a tupperware in the fridge. I mixed my dressing in the same container so I could get all the sweet drippings of roasted red peppers. I added:

  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 of a lemon juice
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • fresh ground pepper

I plan to make this again soon as is. I love Greek salad is all varieties =)
