Quinoa is one of those foods that makes last-minute, thrown-together, dinners feel like culinary haute couture. It’s ready in less than 3o minutes and, like rice and pasta, has lots of options.
Last night was a night that called for something quick and easy. Work was exhausting and traffic was excruciating (2 hours on the 405…too bad I’m not drinking anymore). Looking around I gathered a leek that had definitely seen better days, some sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil and a cup of rainbow quinoa. Since the sun-dried tomatoes also came with great herbs I was even more ahead of the game.
