Quinoa and Bean Salad Topper

Here is simple way of adding a bit of healthy carbs, protein, fibre and plenty minerals and antioxidants into your salad.

1 cup of black quinoa to 1 and 1/2 cups of water plus seasoning, wait till it’s boiling, lower the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes. If water doesn’t cook out rinse it out.

If you have not cooked quinoa before and you are just planning to add it into a salad, I definitely recommend adding salt or even a stock cube as quinoa can have a bit of an earthy taste to it. Plain quinoa goes amazing with a coconut and sweet potato curry, or even some Thai green curry.
