    Quinoa is a versatile food, similar to rice, but with enough 9 essential amino acids to make a complete protein. It’s easy to prepare and super tasty. Print the complete recipe at http://www.myfoodchannel.com/quinoa-salad/

    QUINOA SALAD:
    ingredients:
    1 cup quinoa
    3 medium tomatoes (chopped)
    ¼ cup red onion (finely chopped)
    3-5 garlic cloves (minced)
    ½ inch ginger (minced)
    1 cucumber (chopped)
    1/3 yellow pepper (chopped)
    1 carrot (thinly sliced)
    ¼ cup parsley or cilantro (chopped)
    3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
    2-3 Tbsp olive oil
    2 Tbsp lemon juice
    Salt (to taste)

    Directions:
    Add 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 10-15 minutes (I find it usually takes about 15 minutes). Place cooked quinoa in bowl and let cool—doesn’t have to cool completely—by the time you get your other ingredients prepped, the quinoa will be cool enough. Add vinegar, olive oil, salt, and stir well. Add onion, ginger, and garlic. I usually chop the onion fine and MINCE the garlic and ginger VERY WELL. The raw garlic and ginger adds lots of flavor and nutrition. Give the bowl a good stir and get these ingredients mixed thoroughly. Add yellow pepper (red pepper is fine, but yellow makes a nice color contrast), cucumber, carrot. Sometimes I also add green onions—or even diced jalapenos if I’m looking for a little kick—feel free to experiment with any vegetables you enjoy in a raw state. Mix ingredients and then add the tomatoes. I like to add the tomatoes last so they don’t get too beat up by the spoon. If you’ve got some parsley or cilantro on hand, throw that in as well—I make sure I’ve got some cilantro on hand when I’m making this dish. A bit of lemon juice is a nice finish and will also help keep the colors of the dish vibrant. Bon Appétit!
