Cooking with quinoa


A lot of nights, after a long day of work, all I want to do is throw dinner together quick, but it’s hard to find something that’s fast to prepare, filling and tasty, too (especially when your cooking ability is limited, like it is with me). Anyways, I’ve been leaning a lot on quinoa lately and found an awesome recipe for a tabbouleh-based dish.


The quinoa is supplemented with loads of the usual veggies: Chick peas, cucumbers, red onions, grape tomatoes and more. But the real flavor punch comes from the lemon juice, mint, parsley and…cinnamon. Yep, it’s shockingly delicious and the whole recipe takes all of 15 minutes to make.

Sure, there’s nothing new about quinoa, but I’m loving this fresh and summery dish.

Any new recipes you’ve tried and loved lately?
