A Quick and Healthy Lunch: Apple Quinoa Salad

Français

I made myself an Apple and Quinoa salad for lunch. It was quick and easy to do, rich in nutriments and did not involve going to the restaurant!

When I make myself such a meal, I don't really mesure the ingredients. I go with my taste of the moment. The only thing I mesure is the quinoa in order to cook it right.

Recipe

  • Cooking Time: 10 minutes
  • Preparation: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of rinsed quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cup of water (to cook the quinoa)
  • 1 apple
  • Diced celery
  • Chopped almonds
  • Fresh parsley
  • Olive oil
  • Honey
  • Lemon juice

1. Rinse the quinoa and put it in a small pot with the water.
