Tomato Quinoa Salad

Tomato Quinoa Salad


Ingredients:
1/2 cup dry quinoa
3/4 cup water
2-3 cups chopped/sliced tomato
15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from 2 limes)
2 TBSP avocado oil
1 clove garlic (smashed and minced)
1 TBSP fresh chopped parsley
1/2 tsp ground cumin


Instructions:
  • First rinse and drain your quinoa using a mesh strainer or sieve. Bring a small pot to medium heat and lightly toast the quinoa to remove any excess water. Stir as it toasts for just a few minutes. This step is optional but really adds to the nuttiness and fluff factor of the quinoa! Next add your water, set burner to high, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered with the lid slightly ajar, for 12-13 minutes or until quinoa is fluffy and the liquid has been absorbed.
  • While the quinoa cooks, chop, slice and prep the remaining ingredients.
  • To make the dressing, combine avocado oil (or healthy oil of your choosing) with fresh lime juice, minced garlic, parsley, cumin, salty and pepper.
