Quinoa Salad with Lamb
The weather is getting warmer (yay!) and I’m eating so much quinoa salad and I’m loving Quinoa Salad with Lamb! Love all quinoa salads – they are so delicious, fresh, clean and healthy – why wouldn’t you eat salad every day. Here’s one of my favourite Quinoa Recipes; Quinoa Salad with Lamb.
Cook up a whole packet on quinoa on a Sunday usually, and that lasts most of the week as a protein source mixed with whatever you have in the fridge! You can also add swap the lamb for cooked chicken, tuna or whatever you have – make it easy for yourself. Wouldn’t you like this for lunch – delish!
Simply cook up a packet of our Quinoa (whichever one you fancy – they all work beautifully – here we used the Sundried Tomato and Kalamata Olive one) as directed (makes 500gm which is enough to fill a one litre container as it’s so fluffy!).
Chop up whatever veggies are in the fridge: raw carrot, raw zucchini and raw sweet potato, cucumber, tomato, radish and then add to baby spinach and lettuce leaves.
Add however much quinoa you feel like (not too much is required) then mix through. We also added some chick peas, orange olive oil and some of the Beautiful Maggie Beers Verjuice – yum.
Make sure that there are left overs for the next day too – love the leftover lunch! Cook once, eat twice (or even 3 times if you’re me…!)
Feel free to add whatever you enjoy – mushrooms, red capsicum or avocado, oh yes, don’t forget the avocado! Quinoa Salad rocks!
Roast Veggie Quinoa Salad
Roast Veggie Quinoa Salad is also a real winner for me. I dice up pumpkin, sweet potato and beetroot (so sweet; like lollies!). A bit of rocket or salad leaves and yum! Delicious and healthy vegetarian (or vegan) option.
