This is a great lunch or side dish. Quinoa is an ancient grain and a good source of protein. Quinoa is a complete protein. It is full of good nutrients and vitamins. This means that while you are eating quinoa you are ensuring that your body is getting good quantities of the right minerals to keep you healthy while you are on a reduced diet.
1 cup Quinoa
1 ½ cup cold purified water
1 chicken stock cube (or substitute water & cube for homemade stock)
¼ cup sprouts – pea sprouts are my favourite
1 tomato – diced
2 green onions – diced
¼ cucumber – diced
1 tsp fresh basil – chopped
1 tablespoon olive or flax oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Measure and rinse Quinoa, pour into medium sauce pan, add water and stock cube. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes, removed from heat, cover and let cool. Mix oil and vinegar. Transfer Quinoa to glass bowl, mix in vegetables, sprouts and basil. Add oil and vinegar, toss and enjoy.
