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.
