Warm Quinoa Salad from Quirky Cooking -review
« on: July 26, 2014, 11:49:54 am »
I've made this yummy salad twice now. This is a great salad to have as a meal on its own or as a side for a large group. It makes A LOT!

Like many of Jo's other recipes, she has used the TMX thoughtfully. Eggs rest in a bed of quinoa for steaming, meanwhile veggies and chicken cook in the varoma. And also like many of Jo's other recipes, the ingredients list can be adapted to what you have (I had smoked chicken, used some cranberries, caramelised balsamic and omitted the olives....I can imagine a Moroccan variation...)

Don't be turned off by the long list of ingredients and longish method, just substitute for what you have, the instructions are very simple.

I think it is best served as a platter, I found it tricky mixing all the ingredients together.

The recipes in Jo's books are so tasty, and I always feel I am being healthy when I make them.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I loved this...

I roasted my veges, didn't put chicken in it (I had it as a side to roast meat) and it was really good.

Will make again  :)

Made tonight as a main, subbed brown rice for quinoa.

Absolutely delicious, the flavors are amazing together.

Will become a regular.

Mmmmmmmm

Bumping as this is a great and versatile recipe.

I roast my pumpkin, usually omit chicken, sub brown rice for quinoa and reduce quantities to serve two.

Absolutely add and omit anything, quick easy lunch I find.

You obviously enjoy it SuzieG. I'm going to a Quirky Cooking seminar on Tuesday evening.
