Revisiting Quinoa

Wondering what to do with that box of quinoa you bought to make my last recipe? Well, here's a super simple, yet hearty recipe that's sure to energize you...AND you can make it in about 20 minutes!

What you need (this makes about 2 servings)

1 cup chicken (or vegetable stock)
1/4 of a small red cabbage, sliced/chopped
2/3 cup soybeans
1/2 cup quinoa
salt, pepper, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder

What to do:

Prepare the quinoa by mixing the dry quinoa and stock in a saucepan. Let come to a boil, lower the heat and cover for 15 minutes, until the quinoa is tender.

Add the soybeans and cabbage.

Dress with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, red pepper flakes, and garlic in some form (I use chopped and dry) and about 1 Tb vinegar - it will soak right in so add more if necessary. I used a pomegranate balsamic vinegar and it was absolutely divine, so experiment with any crazy flavors you have hanging know one of your friends gave you a bottle as a gift some number of birthdays ago.
