Not that you would know it's almost summer since it's fucking 0 degrees in Toronto. And not that I would know what the weather is like anyways since I haven't left my house all fucking day. And not that I have time to cook this since I'm writing this fucking paper FOREVER. So more of an aspirational recipe than a reflective one. Kisses and polar bears.
c/o the back of the Casbah quinoa box
225g dry quinoa
2 1/2 cups water or broth
1 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
1 sweet yellow pepper, diced
1 cup cucumber, diced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
salt and pepper to taste
pinch of crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
Add quinoa to boiling water/broth, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. In the mean time, chop your veggies. Combine salad ingredients. Combine dressing ingredients. Combine combinations. Sprinkle with Canadian feta if you're feeling nostalgic for Supa Inca. Serve cold.
