The weather is beautiful here in LA and I’m craving a healthy quinoa salad.
- 1 cup quinoa
- 1 1/2 cups of water
- 1 celery stalk, chopped
- 1 tomato, diced
- 1 avocado, diced
- 1/2 lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 cups arugula
- Cilantro, mint, salt and pepper
Wash the quinoa, then soak for at least an hour (I let it soak overnight if possible. I always let it sprout), rinse carefully and add to a pot with the water. Add sea salt or Kombu and then bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat to simmer, cover and cook until the liquid is absorbed.
Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, add salt and pepper as desired. When the quinoa is cooked add and mix with the rest of the ingredients, serve and enjoy!
