- Recipes & Random Thoughts
- I have been cooking my way through life for over 50 years, beginning with mud pies as a child. I've turned a corner now and feel a Renaissance in my life. Recipes and Random Thoughts is my personal spin in a blog about how to prepare good food and how it prepares you for life. I want to share with you, honest to goodness food punctuated with perspective from the special memories and moments that have marked my journey.

Quinoa, Golden Beet & Feta Salad
1 cup quinoa, rinsed in a mesh strainer under cold water
2 cups water or stock
1 tsp salt
1 tsp neutral oil
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and let simmer for 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and quinoa is puffed. Allow quinoa to cool to room temperature and transfer to a mixing bowl.
In the meantime, roast two golden beets. Wash, trim and coat the beets lightly with oil. Wrap tightly in foil and roast in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes until tender. When cool enough to handle, peel away the skin and cut beets into bite size pieces.
Add the golden beets,
1/3 cup chopped chives
1 cup crumbled Feta cheese
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
Dress with a simple vinaigrette.
May be served cold or at room temperature.
