Protein-packed quinoa is toasted, then cooked until tender with sweet peppers and garlic for a hearty side dish.  You can serve this wholesome grain dish hot, at room temperature or even chilled- perfect for any season! Until this recipe, I never liked quinoa. In fact, I gave all of my quinoa stash to my mom. Now, I found a recipe that I love and my family loves. I can't believe it!

My favorite time of the year to cook is in the summer. Everything is so fresh and delicious. Meals on the grill are so easy. Produce is at its best. Fresh summer peaches, corn on the cob, homegrown tomatoes and perfectly ripe strawberries are just a few of my favorites.

What is fun about the summer is that there is always so much to do. Lots of cookouts, picnics, potlucks, etc. I have gotten to be known for my Texas Caviar also known as black bean salad and it is often requested that I make that for a party. I always struggle a bit when thinking about what to bring for a party.

I want to bring something that pleases the crowd, tastes great, holds up during traveling to the party and probably sitting out for awhile. I recently brought a feta, tomato and cucumber salad to a party with a homemade vinaigrette that was a hit.

I tried this quinoa bell pepper pilaf which is simple, nutritious and delicious. It is good hot or cold so you could serve it in the fall or winter with roasted chicken and broccoli or in the summer as a cold salad along with your favorite barbecue dishes.
