How to do it? Professional Chef Female

We’re obsessed with this quinoa salad in my house lately. Not only is it healthy and packed with healthy ingredients – it tastes great! This bright and colorful salad is a great summertime recipe. Light and citrusy, it’s a whole new way to enjoy quinoa.














INSTRUCTIONS

  •  To cook the quinoa: Combine the rinsed quinoa and the water in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then decrease the heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook until the quinoa has absorbed all of the water, about 15 minutes, reducing heat as time goes on to maintain a gentle simmer. Remove from heat, cover, and let the quinoa rest for 5 minutes, to give it time to fluff up.
  • In a large serving bowl, combine the chickpeas, cucumber, bell pepper, onion and parsley. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, garlic and salt. Whisk until blended, then set aside.
  • Once the quinoa is mostly cool, add it to the serving bowl, and drizzle the dressing on top. Toss until the mixture is thoroughly combined. Season with black pepper, to taste, and add an extra pinch of salt if necessary. For best flavor, let the salad rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
    This salad keeps well in the refrigerator, covered, for about 4 days. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Canon EOS R Full Frame Mirrorless Camera

I use the Canon EOS R almost daily for recording and photography. The full-frame mirrorless EOS R camera is the first in Canon’s new EOS R system. With a new mount, a variety of dedicated lenses, full compatibility with EF/EF-S lenses* and significant achievements in handling and performance.

Note: If you happen to have 3 cups of leftover cooked quinoa, you can use it instead of cooking more. CHANGE IT UP: This salad is awesome as written. You can serve it on fresh greens with an extra drizzle of olive oil and squeeze of lemon juice for dressing. Feel free to top it with crumbled feta cheese or a dollop of cashew sour cream (recipe in my cookbook, page 217).
