Mediteranean Quinoa

I'm just posting a short one today. This is recipe number six for recipe week. It's an easy recipe that has many of my favorite flavours. I think that the most delicious recipes are usually the simplest. 

Mediterranean Quinoa
adapted from "Pine Nut & Roasted Red Pepper Salad" from Quinoa Revolution, Patricia Green and Carolyn Hemming 2012. 

2 C water
1 C quinoa
3 Roasted Red Peppers, cooled and chopped
1/2 C crumbled feta cheese
1/3 C sliced green onions
1/4 C sliced almonds
Juice from 1 small lemon
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 C chopped fresh parsley
1. Cook the quinoa with the water according to package directions. Fluff with a fork.
2. Whisk the lemon juice and oil in a small bowl to make dressing.  
3. Combine the quinoa, peppers, feta, and onions in another bowl.
4. Pour the dressing over quinoa mixture and mix well. Top with almonds and parsley. Enjoy warm, at room temperature, or cold.
