This vegan salad is simple, fast and healthy. I usually prepare it few hours before eating it so that I can appreciate more its tasty and fresh flavors.
Time of preparation
about 30 minutes
What did I use
a non-stick pan, spoons, a wooden spoon, a cutting board, a glass bowl
Quinoa: 70 gr
Tomato, washed and cut in little cubes: half
Chickpeas in can, washed and dried: about 100 gr
Carrot, peeled and cut in julienne: half
Salt/pepper/ minced basil to taste
Ground peel of 1/4 lemon
Onion, peeled and cut in thin slices: 1/4
How did I do
I browned the onion in the hot oil for few minutes at slow fire.
I added the quinoa, I covered with some water and cooked for about 15 minutes, covered with a lit, controlling that it didn’t dry too much and adding hot water when necessary.
In the bowl I mixed the carrots, the beans, the tomatoes, the lemon’s peel, the basil and the oil.
I added also the onion with the quinoa and I mixed well. I let it cool down and I put in the fridge until I served.
