Grilled Kebobs with Red Quinoa

Bowl of grilled kebob and red quinoa

Red quinoa is my latest love. It cooks in 15 minutes, is a great partner to just about any ingredient, and takes to simple, whole flavors wonderfully. It has a slightly earthier taste and texture (a bit firmer) than the regular quinoa, and a chocolate brown color to it when it’s cooked. And it’s grilling time here, so it goes great with grilled kebobs.

I grill just about anything fresh right now – fruit, vegetables, meat, and in a myriad of combinations. I just make sure to oil (and season) what is being grilled so it doesn’t get dried out and stick to the grill. You can also oil your grilling surface to prevent sticking.

I chop the ingredients into bite size pieces that can also securely stay on my stainless steel kebob skewers. I inherited my skewers, but they look like these. You can also use bamboo skewers. Soak the bamboo skewers in water for a few minutes so they don’t burn, and then load them up.

Below is a quick recipe I made last night. We just got home from a trip to NYC to see friends and family, so I just picked up a few things to grill. I prepared the kebobs, started the grill and the quinoa, then placed the kebobs on the grill, and in 15 minutes the entire meal was ready to eat (we have a gas grill).
