Curried Quinoa Lentil Salad 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This is a great lunch or dinner side dish, full of protein and vegetables. Lentils are loaded with fiber, folate, iron, protein, and other vitamins and minerals, lentils are a nutritional fountain of youth. Researchers who studied the elderly found that eating these earthy-tasting seeds (and other legumes) is the single most important dietary factor in longevity. When it comes to fiber, a mere half cup of lentils provides around a third of your daily requirements. Whether you purchase lentils prepackaged or in bulk, look for those that appear largely unbroken (bags with broken lentils appear "dusty") and when you get home, don't mix newly purchased lentils with older ones; the older they are, the longer they take to cook. Keep them stored in a cool, dry place, and they will stay fresh for several months.



Ingredients:
1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
1/2 cup lentils
1 3/4 cups purified water
1 organic cube or 1 teaspoon of chicken bouillon
1 tablespoon curry
1 red, orange or yellow pepper – diced
1/3 cup diced cucumber
1 small organic apple diced
The juice of 1 lemon
1-2 tablespoons flax or olive oil
1-2 cloves garlic minced
Fresh herbs – optional (basil, cilantro, parsley)


Directions:
Measure quinoa, lentils, water, bouillon and curry into sauce pan and bring to boil, reduce and simmer for 15 minutes or until water just about absorbed. Cover and set aside to cool, and then refrigerate.
Dice vegetables and apple and set aside until quinoa mixture cooled, then add to quinoa mixture.
Mix lemon, garlic and oil together, drizzle over quinoa mixture and toss.
Enjoy!

Wellness Tip
Sponges and Kitchen Germs
Keep your kitchen sanitary. Our registered dietitian recommends washing sponges carefully and replacing them regularly. Sponges can harbor bacteria. These may recontaminate your dishes and countertops. Wash sponges in the hot cycle of your dishwasher, or disinfect them in a chlorine bleach solution.
