Two-Step Veggie Almond Quinoa Toss


* 1/4 cup olive oil
* 1 small sweet onion, diced
* 2 ribs celery, diced
* 1 carrot, peeled and diced
* 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
* 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
* 1 garlic clove, minced or grated
* 1/4 tsp oregano
* 6 cups cooked quinoa
* salt and pepper to taste
* 1 cup chopped almonds, dry roasted


1. Put olive oil in large skillet over medium heat; add onion, celery, carrot, green pepper, and red pepper, and cook, stirring until vegetables start to soften, but are still somewhat crisp. Stir in garlic and oregano and heat for 1 minute.
2. Remove skillet from heat and stir in the quinoa, mixing well. Salt and pepper to taste. Toss in roasted almonds and serve hot either as a side dish or light main dish.


This makes a nice big salad. Be sure to have cooked quinoa in your refrigerator at all times so you can always throw this, or other quinoa dishes, together in minutes.

Roasting almonds is easier than you might think. Just put them in a dry skillet over medium heat and toss them around until they are lightly browned. It should only take a minute or two.

Serve this dish as a side dish or a main course. Quinoa is loaded with protein, so it works as either. You can, of course, toss in some cooked chicken or even seafood to make it more filling.
