Ottolenghi Red Rice and Quinoa Salad

I made the quinoa and rice salad recipe from Ottolenghi which I first spotted on 101cookbooks.  It is also online here.
Thoughts: The qinoa and rice tasted yummy with just the sauteed onions and salt and pepper. The citrus juices gave something more, but I’m not sure that I really needed to add the scallions, nuts, and apricots. The scallions and apricots added welcome color, though.

For next time, I will try just the onions, lots of salt and pepper, with some lemon juice added in.

    I LOVE quinoa and combining iit with red rice, fruit, nuts scallions etc..looks and sounds fantastic! Also drooling over that mango salsa below. Two bookmarks this time!

    I’ve never really seen the point of quinoa. Weird texture, and I’d rather have rice or cous cous. That said, if it’s an Otolenghi recipe, it must be a winner!

      I hear you, Gary! It took me a while to warm up to quinoa. When I was first getting into quinoa, I found that I preferred recipes that mixed quinoa with another grain, like millet or rice. You can try making this with just brown rice.
