Mediterranean Quinoa Salad With Hummus
This filling and refreshing Mediterranean Quinoa Salad With Hummus is the perfect nutritious lunch option. Make a big batch of quinoa and set yourself up for the week!
Rinse 1 cup of quinoa through a sieve and transfer to a saucepan. Lightly toast the quinoa over medium heat. Add 1 3/4 cup of vegetable broth to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Once you've got a boil going, reduce the heat to low, cover, and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the quinoa has absorbed all of the liquid and can be fluffed with a fork. Set aside.
Place walnuts in a dry pan and place over medium-low heat for 3-5 minutes, or until they're lightly toasted, shaking the pan often to prevent burning. Set aside.
Place 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa in a bowl along with the spinach, olives, onions, cucumber, tomatoes, and walnuts. Top with hummus and dig in!
Try this with my homemade hummus!
This recipes makes enough quinoa to make this salad for the week. If you only want to make enough quinoa for a 1-2 servings of this salad, cook 1/3 cup of quinoa in 2/3 cups of broth instead.
