Quinoa & Pepper Pilaf is the perfect summer dish that is ready in under 30 minutes!

Obviously I love to cook, but with summer here I do not want to spend all my time in the kitchen. I want to eat quickly and then get outside and enjoy this gorgeous weather we've been having. I've been making a lot of quick meals that are ready in 30 minutes or less, and this Quinoa & Pepper Pilaf is one of my regular go-to recipes for summer dinners and side dishes. I love that the Quinoa & Pepper Pilaf can be eaten hot, warm, or cold - so while it is perfect for summer entertaining, it is actually a great dish year round. This Quinoa & Pepper Pilaf is great for family meals but would also be a huge hit at a cookout, potluck, or a summer block party!

Quinoa & Pepper Pilaf is the perfect summer dish that is ready in under 30 minutes!

The reason I love this Quinoa & Pepper Pilaf dish is that it combines some of my favorite ingredients:

  • The Swanson Chicken Broth adds a ton of flavor to the Quinoa & Pepper Pilaf - much tastier than cooking quinoa in water!
  • The truRoots quinoa is a USDA organic, non-GMO project verified whole grain. Quinoa is one of my favorite things to cook because it is so versatile and timeless.
  • Pace Organic Salsa for a little kick!
