Summer quinoa salad | GF VEG

This is an easy summer meal.

protein: quinoa is considered a “complete protein” due to its’ relatively high content of lysine & isoleucine

1/2 cup Quinoa (uncooked)
2 tbspns feta
1 carrot (I choose organic), grated
1 small zucchini
4-6 honey snap peas, sliced thinly
1/4 cup combined parsley & mint, finely chopped
1 tspn thyme
chilli & lemon to taste

METHOD
1. Cook quinoa as per packet instructions
2. While quinoa is cooking, grate the carrot & zucchini (I tend to do a “large” grate)
3. Chop / crumble feta
4. When quinoa is cooked, let it cool a little then stir through carrot, zucchini, feta & herbs.
5. Stir through chilli to taste, pop honey snap peas on top
