Veggie Packed Quinoa Salad

IMG_6568

 When I cook I like it to be easy, healthy and I don’t need to think too hard.  This is a recipe I made up after teaching a few classes and was hungry but needed a good hit of veggies , protein and carbs!

  • 1 Cup of Quinoa (cooked per instructions)
  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 60-80g slivered almonds (could use seeds here too)
  • Veggies of your liking, I used
  • Red cabbage
  • Snow peas
  • Capsicum
  • Carrot
  • Baby spinach

My best friend in cooking is my food processor, so I finely sliced all the veg and added it to quinoa mix.

Dressing

  • 1-2 tabs olive oil
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1-2 braggs liquid aminos (can use soy sauce or tamari)

Mix through salad and YUMMMMMM!! Taste sensation in your mouth!
