Greek Quinoa

I found some quinoa in my cupboard that I needed to use up so I decided to make a Greek style quinoa. I added some parsley, feta cheese, kalamata olives, red onion, and grape tomatoes to the cooked quinoa for a healthy and delicious side dish. I loved the flavors and textures of this recipe and my entire family liked it.

    Lots of Quinoa recipes call for it to be served room temp… I am happy to see that this one is served warm :)
