This quinoa dish looks beautiful, thanks to two colors of bell pepper! It’s a great way to introduce quinoa to your kids if they haven’t already tried it.


  • 1 and 1/2 cups quinoa
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 finely chopped cucumber
  • 1 lemon
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  1. Combine the quinoa and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then continue to cook for about 15 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed. Transfer the quinoa to a large bowl.
  2. Add the bell peppers and cucumber. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice over the quinoa mixture. Add the olive oil and vinegar, stirring to combine.
