Other than the Quinoa (which can be a pain to make) this is relatively easy to prepare and actually very healthy because Quinoa is a complete protein and everything else is from scratch and unprocessed.
- dressing: 1 lemon juice (and zest'd), tbsp honey, splash of olive oil, pinch of cayenne pepper, dried parsley, 2 garlic cloves minced, crushed chilli flakes, salt and pepper
- quinoa (soaked, cooked, drained, fluffed, cooled)
- baby spinach, chopped
- carrots, chopped
- cherry tomatoes, sliced
- cucumber (peeled, cored, sliced)
- green onion, chopped
- white onion, chopped
- fresh mint leaves, chiffonade'd (my new cooking term of the week)- dry parsley
Turned out very good, took about 30 minutes to make, including quinoa cook time.
