Greek Quinoa Bowls

Ingredients:


  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 + 1/2 cups water
  • 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 TBSP apple cider vinegar
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 TBSP fresh parsley

TASTY EXTRAS:

  • Hummus
  • Pita wedges
  • Olives
  • Fresh tomatoes
  • Sliced or chopped avocado
  • Lemon wedges

Instructions:


  1. First rinse and drain your quinoa using a mesh strainer or sieve.
  2. Bring a medium saucepan to medium heat and lightly toast the quinoa to remove any excess water. Stir as it toasts for just a few minutes. This step is optional but really adds to the nuttiness and fluff factor of the quinoa!
  3. Next add your water, set burner to high, and bring to a boil.
  4. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered with the lid slightly ajar, for 12-13 minutes or until quinoa is fluffy and the liquid has been absorbed.
  5. While the quinoa cooks, chop and prep the remaining ingredients and whisk together your dressing ingredients.
