Zucchini, Bell Pepper Quinoa - Christmas colors!

Whenever zucchini is paired with red bell peppers, the Christmas mood comes rollin'...


I am pretty much hooked on quinoa. You should have noticed. It is so easy to create a nutritious one-dish meal with quinoa. Plus, cooking quinoa over the stove-top is so much easier (and faster) than cooking rice. The quinoa cooks in just about 10mins.

Work that in parallel with another dish that cooks in the oven e.g. roasted vegetables...


...then fluff up the cooked quinoa (I used truRoots Organic Quinoa), combine with oven-roasted vegetables (zucchini and red bell peppers seasoned with pepper, coriander powder) -- a transformation to a one-dish vegetarian meal Quinoa Salad with Roasted Zucchini and Bell Peppers in less than 20 minutes.


Sharing this festive quinoa salad with Souper Sunday.

Enjoy!
