Toasted quinoa salad
Makes 6 servings
This ancient grain still lives up to its high protein profile and delicious taste in this salad. It’s also a great make-ahead for lunch the next day or easy side dish. Add some cooked beans for a vegetarian delight. Be sure to remember to rinse your quinoa before using it, the saponin on the quinoa makes it taste bitter if not rinsed off.
Tip: If you do not have sodium reduced soy sauce at home, simply use 1 tbsp (15 mL) regular soy sauce and 1 tbsp (15 mL) water.
