Instructions

1. To cook the quinoa: Combine the rinsed quinoa and the water in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and put down the heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook about 15 minutes, until the quinoa has absorbed all of the water and is fluffy. Transfer the quinoa to a serving bowl and let it cool down.

2. Prepare the cucumbers, tomatoes and herbs.

3. In a small bowl, combine the chili chopped thinly with the olive oil, lemon juice, onion, garlic and salt. Whisk until blended, then set aside.

4. Once the quinoa is mostly cool, add the chickpeas, vegetables and herbs and drizzle the dressing on top. Toss until the mixture is thoroughly combined. Season with black pepper, to taste, and add an extra pinch of salt if necessary. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa (or 3 cups of cooked quinoa)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, rinsed and drained, or 1 ½ cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1 medium cucumber, diced
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped herbs like parsley (if you have mint or coriander you can combine with that too)
    For the dressing:
  • 1 small chili (Jalapeño strength or less)
  • ¾ cup chopped onion (from 1 small onion)
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice (from 2 to 3 lemons)
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
