DESCRIPTION SERVINGS:
It's almost silly to call this Rainbow Quinoa a recipe.  Adding quinoa to any salad is a fab idea.  It's naturally gluten-free, it's packed with B vitamins, fiber, and it's one of few plant foods that are actually considered a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids.  WHAT!  Yes.  Quinoa is such a great staple to a nutritarian diet.    


INGREDIENTS


INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a small pot, combine quinoa and water. Bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer and cover. Let cook for 15 minutes.
  2. Once quinoa is cooked, transfer to a large mixing bowl and add in vegetables. Pour your choice of dressing into quinoa a little at a time or squeeze fresh lemon juice over top. If you must, sprinkle with a little salt (but just know that’s really not recommended on ETL.)
  3. Optional: For an extra kick, scratch the lemon juice and instead, add the cumin dressing that's linked in the recipe description...
