Quinoa & Zucchini Warm Salad
1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
1 yellow squash - chopped into bite size pieces
2 zucchinis- chopped into bite size pieces
1 sweet onion - roughly chopped
4 cloves garlic - grated
1 teaspoon crush red pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary (if you get fresh rosemary, use 1 teaspoon of it chopped)
salt to taste
1 teaspoon olive oil
Wash the quinoa and cook it in 2 cups of water and a pinch of salt in a covered saucepan (just like you would cook rice). In a karahi, add the oil. When it gets hot, add the onions and garlic and saute it for a couple of minutes. When the onions turn transparent, add the yellow squash and the zucchini along with the crushed pepper and crushed rosemary and salt to taste. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes. We do not want to cook the zucchini and squash soft here, we need a bite to them. Add the cooked quinoa mixture to this and mix well. Serve as a side of warm salad with grilled fish or grilled veggies.
