I usually like to do crafty "Mama Made Its." But today I thought I would do a neat little recipe I tried out this week.
Most Quinoa recipes I see called for 2 cups of water to 1 cup of Quinoa. But, for me, it turns out mushy instead of fluffy. Instead I did about 1 cup of Quinoa to 1 1/2 cups water.
Boil the water first. Then add the Quinoa.
Lower the heat and cover it leaving a little hole for heat to escape.
This yields a fluffier quinoa.
I rinsed the grapes and chopped the carrots. I sprinkled the grapes with a little olive oil, plopped them on a baking sheet with the carrots and threw them all in the oven on broil.
I left them about ten minutes until the skin of the grapes got wrinkly and the carrots were softening but still crunchy.
Place the grapes/carrots on a bed of Quinoa and your good to go.
Add some butter or a vinaigrette if the quinoa is too dry for your taste.
