  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water

  1. In a rice cooker or stove top pot, prepare your rinsed quinoa with two cups of water. If using the stove, it should take about 20 minutes on a low simmer (after boiling) for your quinoa to be cooked and fluffy.
  2. Once the quinoa is cooked, transfer to a large bowl and chill in the fridge for at least twenty minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare your vegetables for the salad and your dressing.
  4. After the quinoa has chilled, combine with the vegetables and top with dressing.
  5. Serve & enjoy!
