Organic Quinoa Kitchen Sink Salad

IMG_8237

1 cup Organic Quinoa

2 cups Organic Broth

Kitchen Sink Vegetables: Whatever you have on hand! For this recipe I used

1/2 cup diced broccoli

1/2 cup diced cauliflower

1/2 cup diced red pepper

1/2 cup diced cucumber

1/2 cup diced artichoke hearts

1/2 cup chickpeas

1/2 cup feta cheese

Lemon tarragon salad dressing:

juice of one lemon

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tsp honey

garlic powder, red chili flake, black pepper, tarragon

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Add quinoa to a pot and add broth. Bring to a boil and cook for 10-12 minutes or until all the broth absorbs. Let cool. Steam broccoli, cauliflower, and red pepper until al dente. Dice cucumber, artichoke hearts, and add to a bowl with feta cheese. Once the rest of the ingredients cool, add the quinoa, and the steamed vegetables. In a small bowl, add the lemon juice, Dijon, honey, and the spices to taste. Use a whisk and slowly whisk in the oil until the ingredients are emulsified.  Pour over the salad and enjoy. So healthy, fresh, and good for you!
