  1. Bring the quinoa, water, and 1 pinch of salt to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes. Once done, drain a mesh strainer, and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook until the garlic softens and the aroma mellows, about 2 minutes. Add the red pepper, and corn; continue cooking until the pepper softens, about 5 minutes. Season with cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper, and cook for 1 minute more, then stir in the cooked quinoa and green onions. Serve hot or cold.

This dish was DELICIOUS! Even my husband liked it! I did add a few things...about 1 TBS of lemon juice and 1/4 cup of pine nuts toasted. I used minced garlic (1 heaping TBS) because I didn't have any fresh. I cooked the quinoa in 2 cups of chicken broth instead of water. (not 3! Quinoa is cooked like rice, 1 part quinoa 2 parts liquid) This was my whole dinner, my husband had it as a side dish to steak. This was incredible and my new favorite way to make quinoa!

both my husband and i love the flavors of this dish. as the recipe states, you can use almost any vegetable that you have on hand. i used garlic, red onion, fresh corn cut from the cob, red bell pepper and celery. i also used red quinoa which, i think, takes more time to cook than white quinoa. awesome recipe!

Finally! A way I enjoy quinoa. This recipe rocks...the cumin & oregano give it just a little more flavor. And straining made the texture so much better...it also makes it moldable so you can play around with serving it aesthetically (e.g. use a measuring cup, pack it, then turn it upside down on the plate). I'll make this again for sure!
