Directions

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add rinsed quinoa and cook, stirring occasionally for 8-10 minutes, or until grains have expanded and tails have popped out. Drain through a fine mesh sieve under running water, then allow to sit for 5 minutes.

2. Spread cooked quinoa out onto a paper towel-lined sheet pan to dry for 20 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Season with salt, olive oil, lemon juice, scallion and parsley and mix well. Add black beans, peppers and feta and toss gently to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning as necessary.
