- 1 cup quinoa
- 1 medium tomato, diced
- 1/4 cup cucumber, diced
- 3 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 3 tbsp fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
- 2 - 3 scallions, sliced
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 cups water
It is best to rinse and then soak the quinoa in 2 cups of water for at least 6 hours ahead of time. Quinoa will sprout “little tails”. Rinse again and cover with water and bring to a boil. Once boiling in a medium saucepan add the chopped cauliflower, reduce the heat to low, stir and cover and let steam for 15 to 20 minutes.
Reduce heat and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Fold in the tomato, cucumber, parsley, scallions, mint, lemon juice, and olive oil.
