Quinoa has got to be one of the most nutritionally dense grains. It’s high in fibre and rich in magnesium and iron, along with many other nutrients. Quinoa is a complete protein, containing all nine of the essential amino acids, making it a wonderful food for vegans and vegetarians. Fortunately, this super-grain is very easy to make and rather delicious.
I love the texture and taste of this ancient grain. I find that it has a neutral, yet nutty taste. Just perfect for salads. This recipe makes for a great vegetarian main dish or even the perfect side, at a BBQ. The different veggies, nuts and seeds within this salad give it great texture and colour. The dressing is flavoured with spices, sweetness and saltiness, which will keep your taste buds happy.
