Quinoa with Spinach and Feta
My entire family gave this dish a thumbs up.  

Quinoa with Spinach and Feta 


1/2 Cup quinoa
1 Cup water
2 Tsp olive oil 
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1 Cup fresh spinach, chopped
1 -2 oz Feta cheese
Salt and pepper

Heat oil in a medium size pot.  Add garlic and cook for 30-60 seconds.  

Turn heat to medium-high and add quinoa and water.  Once it starts to boil, lower the temperature to a simmer and cover.

Cook about 10 mins. or until water is absorbed.  Add spinach 2 minutes before completed cooking time.

Remove from stove and stir in feta cheese.  You may want to add some salt and pepper to taste.  Serve!
