You can kind of get an idea for what this looks like in this picture here where I served this as a side to my Chutney pomfret!
Cook 1 cup quinoa per instructions on the package – I use a 1:2 ratio of quinoa& water.
In a bowl add the following ingredients (some finely chopped) in any proportion/quantity you prefer –you can mix and match these based on what you have in your fridge.
· Cooked quinoa
· Cucumber (Persian)
· Bell peppers - multi colored
· Green Chillies
· Garbanzo/Rajma/black beans – I used canned (drained & washed)
· Fruit– Pomegranate seeds/apples – whatever tickles your fancy
· Fresh mint leaves
· Fresh cilantro
· Lime juice
· Jeera pwd
· Salt to taste
· Optional - Sometimes I also add feta cheese for an additional flavor profile.
Mix, adjust seasoning as appropriate and enjoy! I wasn’t kidding when I said this was simple! J
