• 1 cup Quinoa, uncooked. The red and black quinoa is good for a change.

• 2 cups water for Quinoa

• 1 organic carrot, chopped small

• 1 small red onion, chopped small

• 1 stalk of organic celery, chopped small

• 2 scallions, white and green parts, chopped small

(save 1/4 cup of scallion for garnish)

• 2 corn on the cob, decobbed or organic frozen corn

• 1 tsp. Sea salt, pinch of pepper

• 2 tablespoons of virgin olive oil

• 1/4 cup lemon juice, fresh

• Optional: fresh organic parsley, about 1/4 cup chopped


Soak Quinoa for 2 mins, rinse well and cook 2 parts liquid to 1 part water. Bring water to a boil, add grain and then simmer for 20-25 mins, until grain looks fluffy. Set aside to cool at least 10 mins.

Prep all the vegetables, juice lemon. Blend olive oil with lemon. Mix veggies with cooled grain and dress, adjust lemon and salt to taste. Garnish with parsley or scallion. Then, ENJOY!!

*Another option: Just cook the quinoa in chicken broth and in the last five minutes, add chopped peppers, broccoli, cranberries (and whatever else you like). Much simpler/faster and still good!
