For the Quinoa
small white onion
(rinsed and drained)
juice of 1/2 lemon
dash of cayenne
(seeds removed) (diced)
salt/pepper to taste
big handful of arugula
For the Roasted Radishes
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Toss the quartered radishes with the olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Roast for 15-20 minutes, shaking the pan halfway through to redistribute.
Meanwhile, in a medium pot, sauté the diced onion in 1-2 tbsp of water until soft, about 5-6 minutes.
Add the broth, turmeric, lemon juice, cayenne, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 10-15 minutes until the quinoa is tender.
Add the diced tomato and arugula to the quinoa. Stir. Taste and add additional salt/pepper if needed.
Serve with the roasted radishes and another squeeze of lemon over everything, if desired.
This dish would also make a great easy lunch or light dinner!
