1 cup quinoa, rinsed in cold water until the water runs clear
2 cups of water
1 large onion, sliced
1/2 yellow or red bell pepper, chopped
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
1/3 cup feta cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat a grill to 400 degrees.
Toss the onion and pepper with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.
Put the onion mixture into a grill pan, and place on the grill. Stir occasionally, grilling for about 10 minutes until the onions start to brown. Remove the grilled onions and peppers, and scrape into a plastic bowl. Toss with another tablespoon olive oil, and set aside.
Start the quinoa as the onions and pepper grills. Heat the water to boiling, stir in the quinoa. Reduce heat to medium low, and simmer covered for 16 to 20 minutes until the water is absorbed.
When the quinoa is done, stir the onion pepper mixture into the quinoa.
Stir in the feta cheese, and serve the quinoa along with your main course.
Place the quinoa in a sieve, and rinse with cold water until the water runs clear for best results.
Grill the peppers and onions while the quinoa cooks.
