Tomato Quinoa Salad


Ingredients:
1/2 cup dry quinoa
3/4 cup water
2-3 cups chopped/sliced tomato
15 oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from 2 limes)
2 TBSP avocado oil
1 clove garlic (smashed and minced)
etc
etc


Instructions:
  1. First rinse and drain your quinoa using a mesh strainer or sieve. Bring a small pot to medium heat and lightly toast the quinoa to remove any excess water. Stir as it toasts for just a few minutes. This step is optional but really adds to the nuttiness and fluff factor of the quinoa! Next add your water, set burner to high, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered with the lid slightly ajar, for 12-13 minutes or until quinoa is fluffy and the liquid has been absorbed.
  2. While the quinoa cooks, chop, slice and prep the remaining ingredients.
  3. To make the dressing, combine avocado oil (or healthy oil of your choosing) with fresh lime juice, minced garlic, parsley, cumin, salty and pepper.
