Quinoa, Feta, Tomato Salad Recipe

Last night I decided I needed to make a big healthy side dish for the salads I take for lunch during the week, so I made a recipe inspired by a greek salad. It's delicious!

This groovy counter is in the kitchen at work :)

1 Cup Organic Quinoa
2 Cups Low-Sodium Stock (vegetable, beef, chicken, etc.)
1 tsp. Olive oil
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp. Lemon Juice

3-4 oz Feta Cheese, small cube
2 Firm Tomatos, chopped
2 Tablespoons of chopped fresh basil

Cook the quinoa as directed on the package, but substitute the broth for water. Let cool. Add olive oil, lemon juice, and spices. Mix well. Fold in the remaining ingredients gently. Voila!

A delicious side dish for the whole week. Feel free to heat this up or eat it cold.
