Technically, quinoa is not a grain, it’s a seed. Quinoa is a complete protein containing all 8 essential amino acids, perfect for vegetarians.


4 cup quinoa, cooked1 lemon zested4 Tbsp sun-dried tomatoes (packed in oil), chopped4 Tbsp kalamata olives, chopped4 Tbsp capers (rinsed and drained)2 Tbsp parsley, minced4 oz feta cheese, crumbled


  1. Combine the lemon zest, kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, parsley and feta cheese in a bowl, stir to combine.
  2. Add the cooked quinoa once it is room temperature or has been chilled in the refrigerator, stir to combine. I don't find that this recipe needs salt & pepper, the capers make it salty.
