Quinoa Salad

Quinoa Salad

Hey guys 🙂 Today we have a super experimental recipe for you – but its awsome 🙂 Quinoa salad with mango, mozzarella and red beet

Quinoa a tiny little seed packs a big nutritional punch: It’s high in protein and nutrients with anti-inflammatory properties. The cereal has a mild, slightly vegetal flavor and cooks up fluffy, like couscous, but is still slightly crunchy.

  • The grains can have a bitter residue on it, so make sure to rinse it well in a fine mesh strainer.
  • Like pasta, you can boil quinoa in a lot of water, then drain it. Or, like rice, combine 1 cup quinoa with 2 cups water and bring to a boil, then simmer, covered, over low heat until tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Quinoa’s light texture makes it great for mixing with other heavier grains.
Ingredients for 2 portions:
  • 1 cup of quinoa
  •  fresh red beet
  • a pack of low fat mozzarella
  • 1 fresh mango
  • Spices of your choice
  • Extra virgin olive oil
Preparation:
  1. Prepare the quinoa as mentioned before 🙂
  2. Boil the red beet (or even buy a cooked one no sugar added when you have little time ;))
  3. Cut the mozzarella and the mango into pieces
  4. Add all the ingredients to your cooked quinoa and put your salad into the fridge
  5. Create your own healthy dressing – we prefer olive oil and spices 🙂
  6. Enjoy your healthy quinoa salad
