 Quinoa & Lentil Salad

Pronounced KEENWA, this is an ancient “grain” native to South America. It is high in protein and has light, fluffy texture when cooked. Its mild, slightly nutty flavour makes it an excellent alternative to rice or couscous.  I have just discovered this wonderful treat and I am obsessed with trying to find as many ways as possible to make it! Enjoy..
Why Eat it??
Quinoa is a good source of protein, has a nutty flavor and pleasing texture similar to rice. Quinoa is also full of vitamins and minerals - iron, magnesium, Vit E, potassium, amino acids - and fiber. Unlike wheat or rice, quinoa is a good source of lysine. Quinoa is adaptable and gluten free. Because of its high protein and (good) fat content, quinoa is a satisfying meal with a few nuts or beans, and veggies added. It's a wonderful addition to soups and stews, transforming them into one dish meals.

1 cup quinoa
1 tsp olive oil
1 shallot or ½ onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp tarragon , roughly chopped
1 cup lentils rinsed and drained
¼ cucumber, lightly peeled and diced
 feta cheese, crumbled use just a little for flavor!
6 spring onions, thinly sliced
zest and juice 1 orange
1 tbsp red or white wine vinegar

1.Cook the quinoa in a large pan of boiling water for 10-15 mins until tender, drain well, then set aside to cool.  Place the lentils in a medium-size pan, cover with at least an inch of water, and boil until tender, 30 to 40 minutes

2.Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small pan, then cook the shallot or onion for a few mins until softened. Add the tarragon, stir well, then remove from the heat.

3.Stir the softened shallot and tarragon into the cooled quinoa along with the lentils, cucumber, feta, spring onions, orange zest and juice and vinegar. Toss well together and chill until ready to serve.
