A colorful side to complement any entrée. It’s good for you, too—featuring protein-rich grains and edamame.

Ingredients

1
cup uncooked quinoa
2
cups water
1/2
teaspoon salt
1
bag (10 oz) Cascadian Farm® frozen organic shelled edamame
1
cup grape tomatoes, cut in half
3/4
cup Italian or Greek vinaigrette dressing
1/4
cup chopped red onion
1/2
cup crumbled feta cheese (2 oz)
1/4
cup chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
1
yellow bell pepper, chopped

Directions

  • 1 In 3-quart saucepan, heat quinoa, water and salt to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until quinoa is tender. Cool at least 30 minutes.
  • 2 Cook and drain edamame as directed on bag. Rinse with cold water to cool; drain.
  • 3 In large serving bowl, toss quinoa, edamame and remaining ingredients. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours before serving.
Tips  

Quinoa is a nutritional powerhouse! It has a terrific balance of amino acids, and it is high in fiber, iron, phosphorus and magnesium. To top it off, it is one of the fastest-cooking whole grains.

If quinoa isn’t available, use 3 cups cooked couscous, preferably whole wheat, instead.
