BEETROOT & QUINOA SALAD

beetroot & quinoa salad

This is super simple, but super tasty.  Totally my kind of recipe!

We had a shared lunch at work today and this was my contribution.  Happy to say it went down rather well indeed.

INGREDIENTS

1 Cup uncooked quinoa

1 large or 2 small beetroots

2 large carrots

1 large handful of flat leafed parsley

½ Cup of toasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds (mixed)

200g feta, I like goat or buffalo feta

4 Tbs olive oil

2 Tbs balsamic vinegar

1 Tbs maple syrup

 

DIRECTIONS

Cook the quinoa in water until the grains are no longer chalky and the water has evaporated.  Fluff with a fork and set aside to cool.

Finely shred the beetroot and carrot (my food processor does this, hallelujah!) and transfer to a large bowl along with the cooled quinoa, chopped parsley and crumbled feta.

Mix the oil, vinegar and maple syrup together and pour over the top, then give it a good mixing to coat everything in dressing.

Scatter over the toasted seeds and tuck in!!
