This quickly became one of my favorite easy quinoa salads. It’s quick and easy with savory, sweet & a bit of sour flavors. I couldn’t stop eating it!
- 1 Cup Quinoa
- 1 ½ Cups Water
- 3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice (about 1 lemon)
- 1 clove of Garlic, finely minced
- ½ teaspoon Cumin
- ¼ teaspoon Sweet Paprika
- 1 Tablespoon Flax Oil
- ¼ – ½ teaspoon Salt
- 3 Tablespoons Parsley, minced
- 2 Stalks Scallions, thinly sliced
- ½ Cup Raisins
- ½ Cup Sliced Almonds, Toasted
- 1-2 Haas Avocados, Cubed
Place quinoa and water into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes, turn off the heat and let sit for about 10 minutes. Spread the quinoa on a sheet pan to cool quickly. Or, you can use leftover quinoa or another grain.
Mix together the lemon juice, cumin, paprika, flax oil, salt, parsley & scallions. Mix with the quinoa and remaining ingredients. Adjust salt to your liking.
