Quinoa Tabouli


Author Notes: Quinoa is a favorite of mine. This little sprout is supercharged with protein and is actually a complete protein, though most consider it grain. Mixed with kale and cucumber it is both light and packed with super powers. Jeanette Bronée, Path for Life

Directions

  1. Use pre-cooked quinoa. To cook takes 25 min. Rinse well, add to a pot and add water. Use 1 cup of water per 1/2 cup of quinoa and a pinch sea-salt. Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer. It is cooked when the little tail of the sprout is opened up.
  2. Wash and finely chop the kale. Put it in a stainless steel or glass bowl. Drizzle the sea-salt and vinegar over it and massage well with your hands.
  3. Chop the cucumber into small chunks and mix with the quinoa and kale in a bowl. Add olive oil, sea-salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Fill it all in a glass and turn the glass over onto a plate to serve.
