• 2 cups water, including drained tomato cooking liquid

• 1/2 tsp Eden Sea Salt

fresh parsley

• 1/3 cup red onion, minced

• 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced, optional

• 1 Tbsp Eden Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Drain the tomatoes, place the tomato liquid in a measuring cup and add enough cold water to equal 2 cups. Bring the tomato/water mixture, sea salt and garlic to a boil. Stir in the quinoa and return to a boil. Cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until the quinoa is tender. Turn off the flame and let sit, covered, for 5 minutes.
