Some things that taste great don't make sense, like this quinoa made with corn, walnuts, grapefruit and more.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups quinoa
  • 1 bunch of scallions
  • 1/2 container of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, crushed
  • 1 bulb of fennel, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup corn off the cob
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • Honey, to taste
  • 1 grapefruit, juiced
  • 1/2 grapefruit, cubed
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • Extra virgin olive oil, to taste
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 1 avocado, sliced

Steps

  1. Put the quinoa in a pot (with a lid) with 4 cups of water. Bring to a simmer, cover, lower the heat and cook as per the instructions on the bag.
  2. In a frying pan, add some oil and blister all but 2 of the scallions, about 2 minutes on each side; salt to taste. When cool, slice them into 1-inch long pieces. Slice reserved 2 scallions and add all scallions to mixing bowl.
