Simple Quinoa Salad with Roasted Tomatoes

Sometimes the best recipes are the most basic ones. Everyone should have a few simple preparation methods up their sleeves to ensure that good meals can be created without too much planning. This simple salad features our high protein Flourist Golden Quinoa and a few ingredients we almost aways have. Add optional roasted tomatoes on the side and you've got a simple, delicious meal. 

Simple Quinoa Salad with Roasted Tomatoes
1 cup dry Flourist Golden Quinoa
1 cup cubed feta cheese
1/2 cup currants or raisins 
1 bunch flat leaf parsley 
1/4 cup Olive Oil 
3 tbsp Red Wine vinegar 
Salt to taste

Roasted Tomatoes
6 Roma Tomatoes, quartered lengthwise
Olive Oil 
Black Pepper
Dried Oregano 

The tomatoes can be made in advance, since they take some time and are best enjoyed at room temperature. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a flat baking sheet with oil or a sheet of parchment. Place the quartered tomato pieces on the oiled tray or the parchment. Lightly drizzle the tomatoes with olive oil. Sprinkle liberally with salt, black pepper and dried oregano. 

Roast the tomatoes uncovered, for 30 minutes until starting to look dry but still juicy. It's a good idea to rotate the pan a few times to ensure even cooking. When ready, remove the tomatoes and let cool to room temperature.

Cook the quinoa according to package directions. While the quinoa cooks, chop the parsley and feta. Set aside the currants or raisins. When the quinoa is ready, fluff well with a fork to release the steam, and lay on a flat baking sheet to allow it to cool. 

Once cool, combine the cooked quinoa, parsley, feta, currents, olive oil, red wine vinegar and salt to taste. Stir well, adjusting the salt as necessary. Serve with roasted tomatoes and more salt and pepper for the table. 

We love this Olive Oil, or this Italian Olive Oil, this Red Wine Vinegar, and this Everyday Salt.
