Quinoa Salad with Multicoloured Peppers

Ruby V left me this recipe on a comment on the blog, I adapted it a little, but here is the recipe she posted – and it was yummy and totally Gluten Free.

What you need:

2 cups quinoa, rinsed,
4 cups water
peppers (I usually do one orange, one red, one green or yellow)
one to one and a half onions, chopped fine
2 small bunches parsley, chopped
currants, about a half cup, or more to taste (I left these out)

half cup olive oil
half cup lemon juice
agave or other gluten free sweetener to taste

What to do:

Put quinoa in pot with water, cover, and boil for 5 min, turn off and leave covered for 15 minutes.

Chop peppers and onions, and parsley.

When quinoa is done (ring separated from kernel) add veggies, mix

Make dressing, add sweetener to taste, salt and pepper. Add to salad, mix well.

Add currants and mix.

Chill in fridge.
