Recipe⎮Quinoa Salad

This salad makes a great appetizer and serving the salad in endive boats makes for a captivating presentation.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed in a fine-mesh colander
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp Chalice Spice Vegetable Broth Soup Mix
  • 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, rinsed and drained, or 1 ½ cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1 medium cucumber, seeded and chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • ¾ cup chopped red onion (from 1 small red onion)
  • 1 teaspoon of Chalice Spice Mexican Seasoning
  • 1/4 cup of fresh chopped flat parsley 
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice (from 2 to 3 lemons)
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • Chalice Spice Himalayan Pink Salt and Peppercorn, , to taste

Preparation:

  1. Cook the quinoa by combining the rinsed quinoa, the water and Chalice Spice Vegetable Broth Powder in a medium saucepan.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then decrease the heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook until the quinoa has absorbed all of the water, about 15 minutes, reducing heat as time goes on to maintain a gentle simmer. Remove from heat, cover, and let the quinoa rest for 5 minutes, to give it time to fluff up.
  3. In a large serving bowl, combine the chickpeas, cucumber, bell pepper, onion and parsley. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, garlic and salt. Whisk until blended, then set aside.
  5. Once the quinoa is mostly cool, add it to the serving bowl, and drizzle the dressing on top. Toss until the mixture is thoroughly combined. Season with black pepper, to taste, and add an extra pinch of salt if necessary. For best flavour, let the salad rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
  6. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Chef's Tip:

Since salad keeps well in the refrigerator, covered, for about 4 days, it is a great recipe to make ahead when you are planning for a large gathering.

Writing this review is a pleasure. Since the start of 2018, Marieconsultancyoz@gmail.com has provided excellent service. I was quite concerned about how to get my coins back after hackers stole them. I had no idea where to begin, therefore it was a nightmare for me. However, everything became simpler for me after my friend informed me about (MARIECONSULTANCYOZ@GMAIL.COM and INSTAGRAM:MARIE_CONSULTANCY). I’m relieved that my bitcoin was found and recovered

Many fake crypto trading platforms have successfully managed to con victims of their hard-earned money. A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a crypto trader on Instagram who claimed to be a manager on a trading platform, he convinced me to invest my money into crypto mining hoping to make huge profits from it, I was convinced when I saw my account balance on their platform, but when I wanted to withdraw my earnings, they kept requesting for money for tax and other unnecessary fees. I realized then that I was being catfished, I stopped all communication and went to the internet to do my research about crypto when I came across Firmwall Cyber Security Service, a well reliable crypto recovery company, I was very pleased with the reviews I saw about this crypto recovery company and I contacted them to assist me to recover my crypto, I gave them all the information and within a few hours, Firmwall Cyber Security was able to recover my crypto assets. I’m truly grateful for their service and I highly recommend them
