What To Do:
1. Bacon may arrive slightly frozen. Thaw as needed.
2. Cook Quinoa: Place quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer. Rinse under cold water for a solid minute, swishing quinoa with your hand while rinsing. Drain. (If you don’t have a fine mesh strainer, you can skip this step.) In a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, add 2 teaspoons oil and drained quinoa. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add 1 cup water and ¼ teaspoon salt to pan. Bring to a rolling boil. Reduce heat to low and cook,
covered, for 15 minutes. Remove pan from heat and let stand, COVERED, 5 minutes. Fluff quinoa gently with a fork.
3. Halve grapes. Chop bacon.
4. Cook Bacon and Onion: Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add bacon, onion and ½ teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring, until bacon is almost crisp and onion is soft (about 6 minutes).
