This is a fresh and zesty quinoa salad from Kylie Kwong which featured in Sydney Morning Herald on 10th June 2010. Quinoa is the only grain that provides all the essential amino acids.

Method

  1. Place quinoa in a sieve and rinse thoroughly under cold running water.
  2. Drain well.
  3. Place in a medium sized pan with the water and salt.
  4. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until all the water is absorbed.
  5. When cooked, the quinoa grains appear translucent and their germ ring becomes visible.
  6. Spread quinoa on to a large plate to cool. Meanwhile, blanch peas for one minute in a pan of boiling water, drain and refresh under cold running water.
  7. Combine quinoa, peas and remaining ingredients in a large bowl, mix well and serve.
