Quinoa salad

  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water or broth (vegetable)
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 1/4 cup sliced cucumber
  • 1 Tbsp. diced onion
  • 1 tsp. grated raw ginger
  • 1 Tbsp. julienned mint
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped pistachio nuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped romaine lettuce
Combine quinoa, water or broth, salt, and turmeric in a medium saucepan. Cover and cook over medium heat until about half the liquid is absorbed and quinoa begins to soften, about 15 minutes. Strain quinoa in a mesh strainer, then place in a bowl. Squeeze lemon and lime over quinoa and place in refrigerator to cool. When cool, toss with remaining ingredients. Makes 1 serving.
