Quinoa and Grilled-Pepper Salad

Submitted by: SPARKLES_MCGHEE

Introduction

Recipe is from epicurious.com Recipe is from epicurious.com
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 1/4 cups quinoa
    3 yellow and/or orange bell peppers, quartered
    2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
    1 teaspoon soy sauce
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    3 scallions, chopped

Directions

Prepare grill for cooking.
Wash quinoa in at least 5 changes of water, rubbing grains and letting them settle before pouring off water, until water runs clear. Drain in a large sieve. Add quinoa to a saucepan of boiling salted water and cook 10 minutes. Drain in sieve and rinse under cold water.
Set sieve over a saucepan with 1 1/2 inches boiling water (sieve should not touch water) and steam quinoa, covered with a kitchen towel and lid, until fluffy and dry, about 10 minutes. (Check water level in pan occasionally, adding water if necessary.) Spread quinoa on a baking sheet to cool.
While quinoa is cooking, grill bell peppers on a well-oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals until slightly softened, about 4 minutes on each side. Cut bell peppers crosswise into thin strips.
Whisk together oil, lime juice, soy sauce, and cumin in a large bowl and stir in quinoa, bell peppers, cilantro, scallions, and salt and pepper to taste.
