Quinoa Lunch

Tried something new for lunch today, a quinoa lunch. I haven't made this grain before but have been wanting to for awhile. It will be the perfect vessel for fresh veggies from the garden. I just made this up so I will attempt to write the recipe down.

Quinoa Salad

2 tsp olive oil

1 clove of garlic minced

1 carrot diced

1 small red bell pepper diced

2 celery stalks diced

1 cup water

1 cup quinoa

2 tbsp Sesame Seeds

1 green onion

1/4 cup Slivered Almonds

Mustard Vinegrette

1 tsp dijon mustard

salt and pepper to taste

1/8 cup vinegar

1/3 cup olive oil

1. In a sauce pan, heat up oil soften all veggies( carrots, red peppers, celery) then add garlic stiring and cooking for an aditional minute.

2. Add water and quinoa, and cook for about 15 minutes until the grain seperates and it is tender but not mushy.

3. In a large bowl toss the quinoa mixture with the green onions, sesame seeds, slivered almonds, and vinagrette chill in the refridgerator until cooled through to eat.
