My mom found this recipe somewhere on the net. We used organic red quinoa. "This recipe can be fun. Try throwing in a few fresh peas, some raw corn, fresh sliced raw green beans, etc."

Recipe Ingredients for Toasted Quinoa Salad

0.75 cup Quinoa
1 cup, chopped Carrots
0.5 cup, chopped Peppers, Sweet, Red

Recipe Directions for Toasted Quinoa Salad

  1. Rinse quinoa and drain. Put in a pot and dry toast until a few grains begin to pop. Add 1-1/2 cups of water, bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the water is absorbed. Remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork and let cool.
