Our secret is to sauté onion and garlic in the pot before you add 1 cup of quinoa and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil and let it simmer for 15 - 20 min.
What you'll need:
1 garlic clove
1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
pinch of salt
To make a quinoa salad: cut up, roast, bake, bbq or steam
salt/pepper/olive oil to taste
Feel free to add any type of vegetable you would like!
We steamed broccoli, mushrooms and zucchini but you can roast, bake or have your vegetables raw.
Quinoa Salad is great with sweet potato and avocado as well as chicken if your aren't a vegetarian.
You can also make a peanut sauce mixing peanut butter and soy sauce ! YUM!
