Directions

Combine water and salt in a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, rinse the quinoa. Add the quinoa and stir briefly. When it returns to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer gently until quinoa absorbs the liquid and grains are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.

When quinoa is ready, stir in remaining ingredients until well combined. Taste, adjust seasoning, as needed, and serve.

    Where is the Flavour?? Boring and flat. Needs more flavor like some garlic, perhaps citrus juice (lemon), feta cheese, or even broth instead of just water. Otherwise, a very plain, basic recipe that people can adjust to go with different meals they are eating.
