I made this as an appetizer and it was a real hit. Fun to eat and a little different or it makes a great lunch or dinner.
Note: Chop all the vegetables into very small pieces
1 artichoke, cooked and the inner choke removed.
½ cup cooked quinoa
1 small cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
½ small red onion, chopped
½ red bell pepper, chopped
1 Tbsp Feta Cheese
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp. fresh Lemon juice
Mix everything together and toss with the olive oil and lemon juice. Season with sea salt and a little pepper. Spread open the leaves of the artichoke and begin spooning the mixture onto the leaves. Be generous.
When serving, your friends will start removing the leaves with mouthfuls of quinoa and vegetables. Its fun and my friends enjoyed it. All that was left was the plate!
