Eva’s Quinoa Salad


Elizabeth: Eva Manterro, my Peruvian heroine from Praising Pete of my Bad Boys of Sweetwater: Tarnished Saints Series, uses some of her native food – quinoa to create a dish. I’ll let her tell you about it.

Eva’s Quinoa Salad:

Eva: Thanks, Elizabeth! This is a cold salad using the wonderful, delicious grain called quinoa. It comes in white, red or black. To start out, sauté 1/2 c chopped onions in 1 tsp olive oil. Add 2 cloves of minced garlic. When soft, add 1 14.5 oz can chicken broth.

Stir in 3/4 c black quinoa (any color) and bring to boil. Cover and simmer til the water is gone and the quinoa has cooked.

In another dish add 1 cooked chopped beet

1/4 c chopped radishes

1 c fresh Cremini mushrooms (optional)

1 yellow bell pepper, chopped

1 kale large kale leaf, chopped

Fresh dill and parsley

Add quinoa mixture to this and toss with balsamic bottled dressing until it is coated.

Try something new with quinoa! – Eva – ☀
