They can be eaten raw in salads and sandwiches or made into products such as soup or tomato sauce. Here’s the perfect receipt to enjoy as those summer months fade into fall.



Tomato, Mozzarella & Basil Quinoa Bowl Recipe


• 2 cups cooked quinoa

• 1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes

• 8 ounces (about 1 cup) mini fresh mozzarella cheese balls

• About 10 to 15 torn basil leaves, or to taste

• 3 to 4 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

• 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil

• 3/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste

• 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste

• Pinch of sugar, optional



Cook quinoa according to package directions and place cooked quinoa in a large bowl. Add all remaining ingredients and toss very well to combine. Taste to see if salad needs more vinegar, salt, etc. and season or tweak accordingly. Salad can be served immediately or transferred to an airtight container and refrigerated to allow flavors to marry for up to 24 hours before serving.
