So, I've just finally gotten used to saying quinoa correctly (keen-wa) instead of reading it phonetically. What an achievement. And now I'm on to experimenting more ways to cook with this awesome grain-like seed.
This meal was AWESOME. Not too hard to accomplish with salmon.
Here's how I made the quinoa.
In a small saucepan, combine:
1 cup dry quinoa
2 cups water
1 T chicken boulion
1 T olive oil
about 10 shakes of basil :)
1/4 of a white onion, diced
Boil until moisture is all absorbed, about 8-10 minutes.
Stir in fresh chopped ingredients, such as:
corn, tomato and cilantro
Other possible additions: black beans, green onion, bell pepper
Serve warm, topped with perfectly ripe diced avocado if you have one.
