August Blogging Challenge: Day 10...

My absolute favorite recipe this summer has been Greek quinoa. I make it at least once a week and Justin and I just eat every last bit of it up every time I make it. It's great for lunch, dinner or even as a snack on the beach. It's filling, delicious, etc.
• 1 Cup Quinoa • 2 Cups Vegetable Stock • Olive Oil •
