Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas (either canned or home-cooked)
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup basil, chopped
  • 2 TBS fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 1 TBS freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  • 1. Start quinoa cooking first so you can chop veggies while it’s going. Bring 1.5 cups of water to a boil and then add the quinoa. Reduce heat to a simmer and let cook for 15-20 minutes until most of the water has absorbed. I like to try it along the way to see if it’s fluffy enough. Then drain any remaining liquid out.
  • 2. Add all the other ingredients and stir!
