A few months ago I tried quinoa and really enjoyed it. You can see my quinoa pilaf post here and read all about the background and health benefits of quinoa. I’m experimenting with a few quinoa recipes and came up with a version of quinoa salad.
Little quinoa stuffed tomato salad bites. Don’t they look yummy? Here’s how I made them.
Start with cherry tomatoes. If you planted tomatoes a few months ago, you most likely have bushels of tomatoes right now. Slice off the tops and scoop out the seeds and pulp.
Make the quinoa according to the package directions and let cool. Add chopped basil and corn to the quinoa.
In a small bowl mix olive oil, lime juice, white wine vinegar, cumin and pepper. Add the the dressing to the quinoa mixture and gently stuff your tomatoes.
Tasty, refreshing and loaded with good stuff.
You can download a copy of the recipe here.
Use up that tomato harvest and whip up a batch for your next summer gathering! Yum!
