Quinoa Salad with Flax oil 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This is a great lunch or side dish. Quinoa is an ancient grain and a good source of protein. Quinoa is a complete protein. It is full of good nutrients and vitamins. This means that while you are eating quinoa you are ensuring that your body is getting good quantities of the right minerals to keep you healthy while you are on a reduced diet.



Ingredients:
1 cup Quinoa
1 ½ cup cold purified water
1 chicken stock cube (or substitute water & cube for homemade stock)
¼ cup sprouts – pea sprouts are my favourite
1 tomato – diced
2 green onions – diced
¼ cucumber – diced
1 tsp fresh basil – chopped
1 tablespoon olive or flax oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar


Directions:
Measure and rinse Quinoa, pour into medium sauce pan, add water and stock cube. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes, removed from heat, cover and let cool. Mix oil and vinegar. Transfer Quinoa to glass bowl, mix in vegetables, sprouts and basil. Add oil and vinegar, toss and enjoy.

Wellness Tip
Think Small for Pasta Portions
Did you know that one serving of pasta is a 1/2 cup cooked, or a portion about the size of half a baseball? Depending on gender, age and level of physical activity, most people need between 6 and 11 servings of grains each day. Heaping plates of pasta may end up providing more calorie-dense carbohydrates than you need. For a well-balanced meal, try limiting portions of pasta to ½ - ¾ cup; consider whole wheat, if available; and include plenty of vegetables and lean meat, fish, chicken or tofu.
