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.

|A plant-centered dietary style that excludes meat. This may include a number of variations. For many people this becomes a way of life that extends beyond dietary practices.

|How to Steam Vegetables|
|Category: Vegetarian Entrees|
Description: When I sit down to prepare my meals, I know for certain that vegetables will always find their way onto my table. Although I like to grill vegetables, steaming them is one of my preferred methods. By steaming a vegetable, its color, texture, and flavor is better retained, as is the vegetable’s nutritional content. Steaming is also one of the easiest ways to prepare vegetables, and can be done in minutes.
