Vegan quinoa salad
Unbelievable vegan quinoa salad with protein
Medium sized pot
Take a sufficient sized pot and add the rinsed quinoa. Add double the amount of water to the amount of quinoa into the pot to prepare for cooking. Add some fine sea salt to give the quinoa some flavor while boiling. Ensure the pot has a lid on and allow the water to heat up
Once the water begins to boil, lower the flame to its lowest setting and let the quinoa gently simmer for about 10-12 mins depending on the size of your pot. Check the pot every now and again to see whether the water has been completely absorbed.
Once the water is fully absorbed switch off the flame and allow the quinoa to cool.
Vegan Agility Tip For faster cooling remove the quinoa from the hot pot and allow to cool in a ceramic dish.
