This Simple Quinoa Salad is really easy to make and is so refreshing. It is a great salad for vegans and vegetarians as the chickpeas and quinoa provide a wonderful source of plant-based protein. The sweetness of the currants works so well with the vegetables and the zing of the lemon dressing. I love to add lots of fresh herbs to this salad. I have chosen basil and parsley because these grow abundantly in my garden.
If you haven’t tried quinoa before, then this Simple Quinoa Salad is a nice way to become initiated. I like to replace quinoa with rice in lots of my recipes now, especially when I make curries. It’s really simple to make and I cook it just like rice, using the absorption method. You add two parts water to one part quinoa in a pot over high heat. Bring to the boil then reduce to simmer, pop on the lid and cook for 15 minutes. Alternatively, if you have a Thermomix, you can cook the quinoa in the basket just like you would cook rice. Add 900g of water and cook the quinoa on Varoma heat, speed 4 for 15 minutes.

I have got the most amazingly delicious gluten free, dairy free and cane sugar free chocolate slice recipe for you. Say hello to my Cacao Almond Slice! This was one of the first recipes I ever created over three years ago and I’m finally getting around to sharing it with you. My bad!
