Quinoa With Blueberries and Feta

10 WWPP Posted by 2 years ago 0 Comments

I always forget about quinoa and then when I whip up a quick dish I remember how awesome it is. The texture, the way it soaks up the flavor of anything you add to it, the health benefits — it makes a great quick meal or side dish.

Quinoa with Blueberries and FetaThe other day I turned a serving into a great lunch. Using the leftover Basil-Mint Dressing I made for my shrimp salad as a flavor base I added a bit of feta and some blueberries to make an awesome bowl of taste and texture.

Here’s what I did…

Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a small pot. Once boiling cover and lower to a simmer. Cook until all the water is absorbed, approximately 15 minutes.

Remove from heat, uncover and toss the cooked quinoa with the Basil-Mint Dressing. Mix in the feta and blueberries and top with more fresh herbs if you like.

Enjoy your bowl of awesome!
