Hearty grain-filled salads are an ideal vegetarian main dish. It's easy to make them light and flavorful while also creating something that's filling enough to sustain guests. Protein-rich quinoa makes the perfect base for the Greek-inspired recipe below.
Quinoa may cook like a grain, but in reality, it's a pseudo-grain. It's naturally gluten-free and rich in protein. Just be sure to rinse it well before preparing it because it has a naturally occurring coating that keeps the little grains safe from pests while growing but can be bitter if left on during cooking.
