Otherwise known as the “Quinoa and whatever else I have laying around” salad.
Quinoa is supposed to be super good for you, so I try to make it as often as I can.
1/2 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed well
3/4 cup water
Any veggies, beans, etc. you have laying around
1 lemon or some kind of vinegar
Same amount of some kind of oil
Let’s do it!
Throw the quinoa and water in a rice cooker and turn it on. If you don’t have a rice cooker, boil the water, throw in the quinoa, simmer and cover. Drain if necessary.
Rinse/chop any veggies you have laying around. I had frozen edamame, chickpeas and tomatoes.
Measure up 1:1 lemon or vinegar and oil in a glass jar. Put in some salt. I also tossed in a bit of dried basil. You can use fresh basil or whatever light herb you like. Shake shake shake!
Mix everything up in a container with a lid.
