Summer Quinoa

by itsalldelicious

School is officially in session! Being that today is my first day of grad school, I was determined to spend my last day of summer making a summery recipe! Summer Quinoa it is!

Start by preparing 2 cups of quinoa according to the package. The ratio is 2 cups of water per every cup of quinoa, so you can easily just make 1 cup. I wanted to be able to take left overs to school and work this week so 2 cups of quinoa did the trick.

Next, dice up 1/2 of a cucumber and add that to the quinoa. IMG_8126
