RecipesDillan DiGiovanniComment

YO! I posted a picture of this awesomeness and peeps were like, "can we get the recipe?!!"

Between chews, I typed up what I did super fast. Since it's easy as heck, if I can type it up while eating, you can make it.

Get lots of fresh, young greens and sprouts in your body now since it's Spring. Think what's coming up from the ground and coming out the ends of trees---align your body and spirit with the new life coming through in NATURE!!

Here you go!

Fresh Quinoa Salad over Spring Greens

Ingredients

2 cups quinoa cooked 1 large cucumber, sliced and diced 1 medium, ripe tomato, diced 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, sliced SUPER thin 1 cup fresh alfalfa or bean sprouts (you'll find these near the salad in most grocery stores, especially Whole Foods) 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil a pinch of sea salt 1 small onion, diced 1 handful tamari-roasted almonds 1/4 cup raisins

 

*You can eat the first round of this warm with some turkey meatballs like I did, and then use the leftovers for the dish I made in the picture I posted for lunch the next day. Cook once, eat a few times!*

Instructions

1) Cook the quinoa in a large pot. (Generally, one cup of raw quinoa needs about 1.5 cups of water to cook but I stopped using recipes a while ago, so check this on Google.) 2) Once the quinoa is cooked, set it aside and chop up the tomato, cucumber and mint. 3) Toss in a big bowl and drizzle on the olive oil and salt. Add sprouts and mix them in. Eat warm.

 

the next day...

Serve over mixed spring greens and add almonds and raisins for garnish!
