What is quinoa? Quinoa is a grain that is kosher for Passover! Pronounced keen-wa, it is a grain that comes from the Andes Mountains of South America.  Visit www.quinoa.net

Ingredients:

1 lb. package quinoa
1 sweet red bell pepper – diced
1 onion – diced 
2 stalks celery– diced
3 – 4 tsp. chicken bouillon powder
Black pepper to taste
1/3 cup olive oil

Directions:

Rinse quinoa 3 or 4 times in a “fine” strainer to remove bitter coating. (This is the key to success; because the quinoa is so fine, it requires a strainer with tiny holes.)

Then, sauté quinoa in some of the olive oil until “toasty brown” Put quinoa in about 6 cups of cold water and add 3 teaspoons of bouillon powder. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer until quinoa is “squiggly”– approx. 20 minutes. Drain well.

Sauté vegetables in remainder of olive oil. Season with black pepper, and 1 more teaspoon of bouillon powder - stir.

Add cooked and drained quinoa.  Stir to combine.

Put in oven safe dish and bake at 325 approx. 20 minutes– just until heated throughout.

Serve warm.

Notes:

Optional: Add almonds, apricots, raisins,currants, sautéed mushrooms
