Quinoa is a food trend that is delicious and healthy. It is as versatile and as easy as rice. This recipe is a perfect side dish to a spicy entree like jerk chicken, Hot wings or Spicy Lime and Honey Chicken. Try incorporating it into some of your weekday dishes. For ease and clean up I make mine in my rice cooker.
3 c water
1 1/2 cup quinoa
1/2 c chopped mango
1/2 t chopped garlic
1/4 c chopped cilantro or parsley ( I used a combination)
1/4 c crumbled Queso Fresco Cheese or Feta
1/4 t salt
1/8 t pepper
2 t olive oil
Add water and quinoa to the rice cooker and turn on, when quinoa is finished pour into a large bowl and add remaining ingredients, stir and serve.
