Quinoa Salad (with an easy recipe for Garlic Quinoa!)


For quinoa:

1/2 cup quinoa (any color but red is my favorite)

1 cup water

1/2 tsp chicken bullion

1 garlic clove

For the salad (per one serving):

1 cup uncooked spinach

1/4 cup cooked quinoa

2 tbsp diced tomatoes of your choice

2 tbsp feta cheese

1 tbsp balsamic glaze or reduction

Salt and pepper to taste


I cook the quinoa the same way I cook white rice. Add everything to a rice cooker and turn it on. You can use a rice cooker or instant pot on a white rice setting and either way will work.

The recipe cooks a lot more quinoa than you will need, but I always end up eating this salad for lunch days after I make the quinoa.

Next you will add the spinach to a bowl, top with the rest of the ingredients and top with the balsamic, salt, and pepper.
