Red Quinoa with Parmesan Cheese and Baby SpinachSubmitted by: STARLIGHT082307
1 cup Red Quinoa
2 cups Baby Spinach
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
4 cloves Garlic
Once quinoa is almost done, add olive oil and garlic to a frying pan. Cook on med-high heat just until garlic starts to turn light brown. Be careful not to burn the garlic - turn down heat if necessary.
Combine the quinoa with the olive oil and garlic. Add the spinach. Once spinach has wilted, stir thoroughly and add the parmesan cheese. Stir again until cheese has melted.
Top with extra garlic powder and pepper, to taste.
Makes approximately 4 servings.

Crumbled feta cheese is also really good. Just be sure to add it when the quinoa is still nice and hot so it fully melts.
