BBQ...and more Quinoa

Another quinoa creation made by me, I call it non other than, Asian Style Quinoa. It contains edamame, cilantro, sauteed shitake mushrooms, slivered almonds, toasted sesame seeds, and 2 cups cooked quinoa.
Asian Style Quinoa Dressing
(This is enough to pour over 2 cups cooked quinoa)
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
2 shallots finely chopped.
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons peanut butter or tahini
1/2 cup sesame oil
1/2 cup peanut or vegetable oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
Mix all ingredients together and pour over quinoa salad before serving.
Errol eating the quinoa...he's a first time quinoa tryer and now he's a quinoa lover! Sous Chef Seth enjoying the quinoa as well! Bacon Wrapped Scallops made by Seth
Seth also made Mexican style corn smothered in sour cream and shredded cojita cheese sprinkled with lime, AKA Elote....who knew it would be so easy to make something so good! Let me tell you, it was f-cking amazing!!! I think I ate it up in 2.5 minutes! YUMMY!
