- 1 cup of quinoa
- 1/2 cup of feta
- 1 medium zucchini, steamed
- 1 pint of grape tomatoes
- 1 can of garbanzo beans
- 3 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 2 tbsp EVOO
- 1 tsp dry oregano
- 1/4 cup of chopped fresh basil
- Salt and Pepper
Start by bringing 1 cup of quinoa and 2 cups of water to a boil without lid. Once vigorously boiling reduce heat to medium-low and put lid on for 15 minutes. Fluff with fork. While quinoa is cooking, cut up your steamed zucchini (to steam, I use a steamer basket), tomatoes, and basil. Rinse garbanzo beans. Mix them all together along with the other ingredients and enjoy!!
