    Borscht for all!

    I love beets. though they are loaded with sugar. Now Ariodante has me wanting to put them on the grill.

    per http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/2305132

    1 cup Quinoa, washed and rinsed
    1 ½ cups water
    1 medium beet, peeled and diced
    2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1 Tablespoon Ume Plum Vinegar, or to taste
    2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
    ½ teaspoon grated lemon zest
    6 red radishes, sliced into half-moons
    2 Tablespoons finely minced red onion
    ¼ cup finely chopped scallions or chives
    ¼ cup Organic Dried Cranberries

    I leave out the oil & vinegar but add a strawberry vinaigrette, use 2 or 3 beets, way more onion and way more radish (luvs radish). Basically fix to taste. The basic recipe is an odd looking but good tasting combo.
