I bought a package of Quinoa that had spinach in it instead of the basil leaves, never had quinoa before. I now love Quino and when I made it(store packaged brand) I added some eggs to it for a real good healthy breakfast. My sons loved it. I found this recipe on Allrecipes(including the picture) and will be making this recipe many times over, I will use basil leaves and sometimes the spinach, maybe both.
I know this recipe is a winner.

How to Make Greek Quinoa

Step-by-Step

  1. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer quinoa to a large serving bowl and let cool completely.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over cooled quinoa and stir. Fold olives, feta cheese, tomatoes, and basil through the quinoa.
  3. **** I enjoy Quinoa as a side for grilled chicken, fish, steak, hamburgers, whatever you like. For a good healthy breakfast, add some eggs, diced bacon. Really good, or enjoy this all by itself.
