Preseved Lemon Quinoa

Author Notes: I am in love with preserved lemon and have tested many ways to incorporate it into sweet, savory and just plain everyday dishes. I put this in lettuce cups and serve as a wrap for lunch as well. I also interchange the quinoa for brown rice or wheat berries.rhonda steppat
