This quinoa dish is a delicious and higher protein alternative to Spanish rice. This is a nice side dish to a Mexican meal, or it can be used as a filling in burritos. I like my food on the less-salty side, so you may have to adjust the seasonings to your taste.

Espinacas con Garbanzos (Spinach with Garbanzo Beans)
This recipe can be eaten as a side dish or as a light meal. It's great with a grilled pork chop and some crusty bread. Its origins date back to North African cultures and is one of the very popular choices of tapas in Seville's bars.
After eating at an 'Italian' chain restaurant and loving this side dish, I went home and tried to recreate it. This is the recipe I finally came up with.
This delicious salsa dip is easy to make and blends the distinctive flavors of tarragon vinegar, green chile peppers and black olives in a zesty tomato mixture. Serve with tortilla chips.
