Vegan Healthy Quinoa Bowl

  • 2012/05/07

'Vegan Healthy Quinoa Bowl' -- 2 Large Servings



1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
Vegetable stock powder or konbu dashi pawder to taste

1 red pepper
2 stalks celery
1 medium tomato
Half cucumber

- Dressing
3 Tbls red wine vinegar (or rice vinegar)
2 Tbls olive oil
1/2 Tbls soya sauce
1 Tsp mustard
1 Tsp crushed chili
Salt & pepper to taste

Coriander to garnish

1. Wash the quinoa and place the quinoa, water and vegetable stock powder in a pan. Bring to boil, turn the heat down to low, cover the pan and simmer for 13min. Turn the heat off, wait for 5min without opening the pan.
(If your quinoa came with its own cooking directions, you can do it that way.)
2. Cut all the vegetables into small cubes (smaller than 1cm cubes).
3. Mix all the ingredients for the dressing.
4. Mix the cooked quinoa, chopped vegetables and dressing and refrigerate.
5. EAT!

This is the one of my favourite salads. I call it salad, but this recipe can be the main in your dinner I think. This fresh and spicy taste will make you feel satisfied.
Quinoa started to be popular in a healthy cooking. If you don't know how healthy it is, you should search it on the internet. Basically quinoa is perfect for our staple diet.

Vegan Memo:
- After you cut the vegetables, put all vegetables into cold water. Cold water make the vegetables crunchier!
