Quinoa is a tiny seed and whole grain that is light and easy to prepare. It is high in protein and tastes great in many recipes! This salad makes a great lunch, snack or dinner. Easy to pack up in a container or send it with the kids to school for lunch!

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup quinoa rinsed
  2. 1 large cup chickpeas
  3. 1/2 cup red onion chopped
  4. 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
  5. 1/4 cup fresh mint chopped

  11. 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  12. 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  13. 1 teaspoon raw honey
  14. 2 teaspoons tahini or dijon mustard
  15. 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Method

  1. Rinse quinoa and strain through a fine mesh. Add rinsed quinoa to a pot and dry toast for a few minutes. Add 2 cups of water with a pinch of sea salt and bring to a boil.
  2. Simmer quinoa for 15 minutes until all the water has absorbed.
  3. Turn off heat; let it sit for a minute or two. Then remove quinoa and spread out on a plate to cool. Then place into a bowl and combine with chickpeas, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, spinach parsley and mint.
