Lemony Quinoa

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Hadice

Quinoa is a delightful grain. It has a softness and a surprising little bite to it. This is so far my favorite way to eat quinoa. I eat it as a quick main dish for one, but it is great added to a salad or as a side. Serve this warm or room temp.

I have made quinoa fairly often but this is the first time I toasted it! This is my new fav! Thank you for sharing!
