Serves 4 to 6
1 cup red quinoa
1½ cup water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon good quality maple syrup
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro, plus a little for garnish
- Soak the quinoa in hot water for 5 minutes. Strain and rinse. Put in a pot with the 1½ cups water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover, and cook until water is absorbed and quinoa is tender, about 20 minutes.
- Transfer the cooked quinoa to a large bowl. Add the sweet potato, red pepper, kumquats, olive oil, and maple syrup and mix to combine. Add the cilantro and lightly toss. Serve hot, at room temp, or cold. Garnish with chopped cilantro and sliced kumquat.
