Quinoa Vegetable Salad
Sometimes we all feel like nourishing comfort food, and this wholesome bowl of goodness is full of healthy quinoa and nutrient packed vegetables. And what's even better, is the dash of tangy flavour from the lemon and spices. Hope you enjoy, BB xxx
1/4 cup quinoa, rinsed
1/2 cup water
2 large tomatoes, finely chopped
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 cups chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped finely
1 cup lettuce or spinach leaves, chopped
1 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
4 onions (any type), thinly sliced
1/2 cup olive oil
Pinch of himalayan pink salt and cracked pepper
1 chilli pepper, sliced
Step 1- Simmer quinoa in a pan with water and bring to a boil. Cover with lid and then simmer for 5 minutes or until just cooked. Put aside.
Step 2- Finely chop parsley, lettuce, mint, onion, tomatoes and chilli pepper, and place in a bowl. You may also want to add some extra vegetables at this point, but I tend to keep it quite simple. Then, add the olive oil, lemon juice, quinoa and salt and pepper. Mix well.
