I have posted countless quinoa recipes on this site, but this, I must say, is a FIRST. I had never even tried red quinoa until one of my students brought some into the studio the other day and had me try her quinoa salad. I was hooked after the first bite! I literally ran out after class, drove to our local health food store and bought the ingredients to make the salad as soon as I got home!! It is absolutely delicious. With so few ingredients, it is so easy to make and the red quinoa has a very different taste than the traditional one. A nuttier, heartier taste which has, I think, become my new addiction. Serve this with lettuce wraps day or night and you’ll have a tasty and satisfying meal on your hands. Thanks Sonia for sharing this recipe with me, and in turn, enabling me to share it with all my followers!!!
1 cup red quinoa (cooked according to package directions)
2 green onions, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
chopped fresh parsley (according to taste – I used LOTS!!)
sea salt & black pepper (to taste)
extra virgin olive oil (to taste)
lemon juice (to taste)
Wait for the quinoa to cool down. Mix everything together in a bowl and ENJOY!!!
Until next time,
Have a fit and fabulous day!
