red pepper relish qunioa

This might be the most amazing quinoa ever! And frankly you won’t be able to duplicate it at home, but I can tell you how you might a) use up some pantry items and b) make something kinda closely resembling this deliciousness, bear with me here…

Back in the fall I plotted and pulled of (with lots of help) a wonderful celebration of canning in my community “Pickle Palooza” which featured a canning contests and jar swaps along with how to’s + puttin’ up demos etc… One of the entries I enjoyed a great deal was a ginger relish, and when I was given the opportunity to swap some jars I grabbed for one of those jars first off! No idea what exactly is in it… other than the obvious: ginger, garlic, vinegar, and sugar (come to think of it, I will dig through the entry ballots and get back to you all on what else was in this lovely relish)… not that that is the most important detail here. I really think most any crazy relish you have made or been gifted would be so nice with quinoa! It tastes like summer BBQ in a hot side dish, especially if you add a hearty dollop of Italian red pepper spread and then add ginger seared beef and red peppers with caramelized onion on top. YUM ┬áThat is what this dish tasted like somewhere between hamburger , summer time, and skewer of Mediterranean gilled veg, with that sweet relish POP!
