Red Quinoa with Butternut Squash, Cranberries and Pecans ... I find red quinoa is a tad crunchier than the usual quinoa I cook, so I add a bit more water to make it softer. If you like your quinoa al dente, use a grain to liquid ratio of 1:2 with red quinoa. If you prefer it a little softer, add another 1/4 cup water.
1 cup quinoa 3 cups water 1 pinch salt 3 tablespoons olive oil 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 red bell pepper, chopped 1/2 cup corn kernels 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1 teaspoon dried oregano salt and pepper to taste 2 green onions, chopped
Mediterranean Quinoa Salad ~ Allrecipes.com This was very yummy - can't wait to try it WITH the olives!! I used organic vegetable broth rather than bouillon and omitted the chicken, since I rarely eat meat.
