Quinoa with Red Pepper, Green Onion and Sundried Tomatoes

I was in the mood for something a bit more substantial than my usual lunch and I wanted to make something where I would have leftovers for a couple of days. I like grain "salads" and since I only had a few vegetables on hand that weren't already earmarked for other meals (I'm a big menu planner), I came up with this dish. There's a bit of a bite to it with the cayenne and the chili powder but as long as you keep it to a pinch of each, it's not anything that should turn off the kids.

This was easy to make, turned out delicious and filled me up nicely. It could be served as a side dish to dinner or as a main with a large green salad. The leftovers are perfect for lunch.
