Mexican Quinoa (keen-wa)

This dish can be a side or a main dish ( I like to add a chicken breast if it’s a main dish). Its ridiculously easy and tastes great – make extra for the small to-go meals during the week!!

Two cups dry quinoa ( costco has a big bag for the best price )
4 cups water
3-4 cups pico de gallo or fresh style salsa

Put water and quinoa in pot to bring to boil….simmer for 15-20 minutes. The seed-like quinoa puffs up and absorbs all the water. When it’s fluffy take it off the heat and mix in the fresh salsa. More or less for the right moisture and texture and spice for your taste! DONE!!! Hot or cold- quinoa can be used in a variety of ways and is the highest protein grain.
