Quinoa and Lentil Salad
July 07, 2010

This was tasty but a bit bland for our taste. I will make it again but add more things that will add more flavor - but no doubt add more fat and/or sodium. Next time will add more veggies and possibly feta cheese or sliced green or black olives (big sodium hit, no doubt). The cucumber doesn't add much flavor so likely won't increase that but possibly more green onion and maybe try different herbs. This was my first taste of quinoa so wasn't sure what to expect other than knowing how good it is for you. It has a very light texture once cooked and nutty flavor. I was sold when I learned it can be cooked in a rice cooker (1 part quinoa to 2 parts water), which is how I cooked it for this recipe. Thanks zoeDisco for introducing me to quinoa!
