Hot quinoa salad.
One serving will require:
handful or more quinoa seeds
for soaking and boiling water
leeks, carrots and other vegetables (broccoli, green beans)
lightly roasted seeds of choice (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame)
Spices: cumin, garam masala, Himalayan salt.
It is recommended that the quinoa seeds be pre-soaked in water pressed with a tablespoon of lemon juice for about 4 hours. This will help to improve the bioavailability of nutrients and reduce cooking times. Quinoa is made to boil in water with a pinch of salt so that the water covers it about 1cm above the quinoa. Meanwhile, chop the leek, cut the carrots into smaller slices. Heat the fats on the pan when they are heated, adding the spices and chopped garlic. Bake until the aroma of the spice mixture appears. Fry the seasoned leek, when it begins to brown add a little salt, stir. A couple of spoons of leek add quinoa, as well as the larger pieces of carrot, stir. Small carrot slices make leeks, fry, add a little salt. When the water from the quinoa is absorbed and evaporated, add the roasted vegetables, optionally black pepper, roasted seeds, ground seaweed, or other optional mix and serve.
