Day 24 – a recipe

I admit, I skipped yesterday. I just couldn't think of anything to post. But I do have a recipe. It is actually a re-post from August. But I think it's one of the more successful of my made up recipes.

Quinoa with Pesto and Feta

Here is a little dish I made up thanks to an overabundance of basil in my mom's garden.

1 c. quinoa
2 c. water or broth (chicken or veggie)
2-3 Tbsp. pesto
2-3 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 c. feta
1/4 c. dried cranberries
salt and pepper to taste

Cook quinoa in the water or broth on low heat until liquid is absorbed. Turn heat off and stir in pesto, olive oil, feta, cranberries, and salt & pepper. Can be served warm or cold. Add more olive oil to create desired texture (i.e., if it's too dry).
