Step by step recipe with photo
If you have not heard about "quinoa" groats or heard, but have not yet decided to try it, then I think it's time to do it, and I will try to convince you that this cereal is very healthy and tasty by offering you several recipes from her.
I will say right away that quinoa contains about 14 g of protein, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, and many useful vitamins and minerals. You can learn more about this cereal from the Internet. This cereal is very popular with healthy eating vegetarians who are also fasting.
So, let's prepare a simple but delicious quinoa salad with sun-dried tomatoes and feta. By the way, there are two types of quinoa in nature: brown and white. I use both types and I can say that brown cereals take longer to boil, and white - 4-5 minutes faster. I will be using brown quinoa today.
We will prepare all the products according to the list. Sun-dried tomatoes we need are those that are sold in oil.
Boil quinoa. To do this, boil 300 ml of water in a saucepan and add a pinch of salt. Add the cereal and let the water boil again, then reduce the heat to low and cook the cereal for 15 minutes under the lid. The groats are ready when they have increased in volume and all the water has boiled away.
Cool the finished cereal.
Cut fresh tomatoes into rings, and sun-dried tomatoes into small cubes.
We also cut the feta into cubes.
We collect the salad.
Put the cooled quinoa on a serving plate.
Then we spread the chopped tomatoes and feta cheese.
Put the Pesto sauce on top, as shown in the photo.
Quinoa salad with sun-dried tomatoes and feta is ready to serve!
Enjoy your meal!
