Spanish Quinoa

 Here's a tasty side dish that will spice up any meal. Made from quinoa, this dish is great for those with celiac and other food allergies.

1/2 cup quinoa
1 1/4 cup water
2 Tablespoons Butter
3/4 cup fresh salsa (recipe follows)
Sea Salt to taste

Bring water to a boil. Add quinoa and reduce heat to medium for about 12 minutes or until all water is absorbed by the quinoa. Stir in butter and salsa. Top with sea salt to taste. Makes 2 cups.

Fresh Salsa

1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced green chilies (I use jalapeno)
2 fresh tomatoes, diced
2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lime juice
fresh ground pepper to taste  

Mix all ingredients together. Makes about 1 1/2 cups salsa.
