Chuck-it-all-in-quinoa-salad

Recently, I’ve been working from my neighbour’s house to avoid the inevitable interruptions, squeals and general chaos of P-nut and Lou.

While there, I often have a nose in the fridge. Not because I want to steal their food. But because I’m nosey and I like to see what other people eat. Is that weird? I like to think of it as resourceful research.

The other day I spotted a tub full of cooked quinoa. Oh, how much easier this would make my lunches!

So today I cooked up a big batch, made a quick quinoa salad with whatever I had in the veggie drawer and stuck the rest in a pot ready for some quick and easy meal/ snack options over the next couple of days.

Here’s today’s Chuck-it-all-in-quinoa-salad.

And here’s how I did it. (Pretty obvious, but I’m in the mood to write it out so here you go…)

  • Chuck some cooked quinoa into a big bowl
  • Add whatever cooked or raw veg you have around, in this case grated carrot, chopped celery. red cabbage, sundried tomatoes and roasted red pepper slices
  • Squeeze in the juice of half a lemon and add a good glug of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper it to your taste. Ta-da!

Mine was served with a blob of cottage cheese and some sauerkraut. As well as being super tasty, it’s healthy and anti-candida friendly. That’s my kind of lunch.
