Red Quinoa Salad (WF, GF, DF)

A simple and nutritious salad to be served as a side or to be enjoyed on its own as a light meal. Quinoa (pronounced Keen-wa), is an alkalising food and has a balanced amino acid profile providing high protein.
Quinoa has more calcium than milk and is higher in natural fat content than any grain (good for sustaining energy); it is also a source of Vitamin B, Vitamin E, phosphorous and iron.



  • 1 cup red quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup coriander, chopped
  • 1 small head broccoli, cut into thin wedge-like pieces
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons tamari (this is a wheat-free soy-sauce alternative)
  • ½ cup pine nuts roasted (or 100g of toasted slivered almonds as an alternative)
  • ½ cup pecans nuts, chopped
  • ¼ red capsicum, cut into thin slivers
  • 1 finely sliced red onion


  1. Place quinoa and water into medium saucepan and bring to boil, then simmer until water absorbs (15 mins). Stir with a fork, then cool.
  2. Add all of the other ingredients to quinoa and top with a dash of cold pressed olive oil.
