Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Quinoa-Feta Deliciousness!

This is my own version of a Trader Joe's "sample" recipe.  The original called for couscous, but I like the protein packed-punch of the quinoa instead.  I've been cooking with quinoa a TON these days, great for making ahead of time and keeping in the fridge to throw in with whatever.

1 cup quinoa
2 cups vegetable broth
1 can garbanzo beans
2 green onions, chopped (white and green parts)
1/2 cup feta cheese
1/2 cup kalmata olives, diced
1/4 - 1/2 cup sesame/tahini/Goddess dressing (pick your favorite brand)
  1. Cook the quinoa in the vegetable broth, according to package directions.
  2. Fluff with a fork, then add beans, onions, cheese and olives.  
  3. Dress and toss lightly.
