You've seen it before and you'll see it again here on my blog, my favorite ingredient QUINOA!! Yes there is another way to make a fantastic salad using quinoa. I will never run out of ideas to make yummy dishes with it.
After Valentine's day especially I'm looking for a healthy lunch today how about you? I really hope seeing these recipes will encourage you to buy, cook and eat quinoa. Once you do you will most certainly wonder why in the world you ever waited so long to try it.
Trust me on this. Buy it, cook it, eat it and then tell me how you loved it....I will be waiting to hear from you.
If you aren't crazy about these few ingredients you could try my Quinoa Chicken Cherry Salad or my Quinoa Edamame Feta Salad.
That's it! Another easy, delicious, fast and healthy recipe!
Have you tried Quinoa yet???
- 1 c. uncooked quinoa
- ½ c. cherry tomatoes, sliced
- ¼ c. red onion chopped
- 1 c. chickpeas, cooked
- 1 avocado, chopped
- ¼ c. lemon juice
- ½ c. fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 tsp. salt and pepper
- 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- Place the 1 cup quinoa in a pot with 2 cups of water. Bring it to a boil then reduce to simmer. Cover and cook 15 minutes till all the water is gone. It should look translucent. See the picture in this post if you're not sure its done. No need to drain.
- Add all ingredients to the quinoa in a large bowl, except avocado, oil and lemon juice.
- Use a mini chopper or mash the avocado by hand in a bowl and mix in olive oil and lemon juice. Mix into quinoa and add salt and pepper to taste.
Fantastic! I added some chopped cucumbers for a little crunch. This will be a weekly staple for me. Thank you!
All of your quinoa recipies sound awesome for anybody looking for healthy and easy recipies; thanks so much for sharing them and your other great recipies! About how many people, please, would your other quinoa dishes -- Quinoa Chicken Cherry Salad and Quinoa Edamame Feta Salad -- serve? (This, I understand from a comment, serves about 4.) Thanks!
The same, 4 servings.
Sounds delicious! I apologize if I missed the info somehow, but how many servings is this recipe supposed to make? I'm thinking about doing the 3 day Detox and Cleanse and would definitely use this as a meal. Also, I was wondering if the nutritional info on the Citrus Fennel recipe was correct - 4 servings from 1 orange and 1 grapefruit? It seems like that would make for very small portions. Also, where is the protein coming from? Do fennel and citrus fruits contain protein? Thank you - GREAT site! I'm also a fan on FB, but a friend told me I MUST come right here to your website. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease last summer so your recipes are perfect for me! Thanks so much for all you share!
Serving above is for 4. As far as the Citrus/fennel recipe you can eat more than the recommended serving if you're hungry. No protein from animal meat on the 3 day cleanse and some cleanses don't use any soy protein or egg white protein as mine has.
