Mint & Jalapeno Quinoa Pilaf
I knew I wanted to make some kind of pilaf thing to go with some lamb chops. The lamb chops recipe was sort of moroccan–braised in a sauce of onions, tomatoes, coridander, cinnamon–so I wanted to complement that.
Quinoa Pilaf w/ Mint & Jalapeno
- 1 cup quinoa
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 jalapeno, small, minced fine
- 2 T fresh mint, minced
- 2 T red onion, minced
- 2 T lemon juice
- 1 T honey
- 3 T olive oil
- 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
Cook the quinoa in the broth. Add the mint, jalapeno and red onion and toss with a fork. Mix the lemon juice with the honey, then whisk in the olive oil. Drizzle the oil mixture over the quinoa. Add the feta and toss again.
