Sweet Little Peppers, Quinoa, Chickpeas and More (serves 4)

The ‘more’ is feta, very thinly sliced red onion, cilantro and lemon juice. Take those small peppers that you see now in the supermarket- a mixture of red, orange and yellow. They are too small to roast (tried that) so just de-seed, de-pith and slice thinly. In fact everything is small and delicate in this dish – little squares of feta, thinly sliced and segmented pieces of red onion and it tastes so good. Can be a side dish – good with lamb – or a vegetarian meal.

1/2 a cup of quinoa cooked according to instructions on container
6 small baby peppers – 2 red, 2 orange, 2 yellow – de-seeded, de-pithed and cut into thin slices
2 tbsp. red onion – very thinly sliced and segmented and maybe cut in half if too long
1 x can chickpeas/garbanzo beans
1 oz. feta cheese – cut into small cubes
1 tbsp. cilantro – finely chopped
1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice

Mix everything together in a large bowl then transfer to a serving dish.
