Quinoa with Pea Pods and Peppers
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1 ½ cups vegetable stock
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup chopped shallots (4 small)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 ounces snow peas, sliced (2 cups)
  • 1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • ¼ cup parsley, chopped
  • 1 yellow or orange bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
Instructions
  1. Rinse the quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer under cold water until the water runs clear.
  2. Place the quinoa and vegetable stock into a medium-sized saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil. Then simmer until quinoa is tender, 15-18 minutes.
  3. While quinoa is simmering, place the oil in a sauté pan over moderate heat.
  4. Once the oil is hot, add the shallots and garlic to the pan. Saute until the shallots become tender, 3-4 minutes. Add the snow pea and peppers and sauté for 3 more minutes.
  5. Drain any remaining stock from the quinoa. Add the quinoa to the vegetables and stir to combine. Remove from heat and add the lemon juice and parsley.
  6. Serve warm as a side dish or cold as a salad.
