Ingredients
  • 1 cup (170 g) quinoa
  • 1 small broccoli
  • 1 avocado
  • 10-15 cherry tomatoes
  • For dressing (optional):
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp tahini (sesame paste)
  • 1 tbsp honey
Preparation
  1. Rinse quinoa with cold water and place in saucepan with 2 cups (500 ml) of boiling water.
  2. Let it cook on low heat 10-15 min until the water has evaporated. Quina should be tender and fluffy when cooked.
  3. While the quinoa cooks, boil or steam the broccoli florets for 5-7 minutes. Cut cooked broccoli and avocado in small pieces and cherry tomatoes in half.
  4. In a large mixing bowl combine cooked quinoa and prepared vegetables, add a bit of salt (and pepper if using) and serve.
  5. To prepare the dressing, combine olive oil, tahini and honey and drizzle over the prepared dish. Alternatively if you do not wish to use this dressing, drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Enjoy!
