Prep Time: 25 min – if quinoa is already prepared 10 min

 Ingredients

  • 2 cups Quinoa
  • 1 cup Lentils or  1 can Black Beans rinsed
  • 5 organic Kale leaves – massaged & chopped
  • 2 Carrots chopped
  • 1 cup Red Cabbage chopped
  • 1/2 Jicama chopped
  • 1 Avocado diced medium

 Directions

Rinse quinoa. Bring 2 cups water & 1 cup uncooked quinoa to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

While quinoa is cooking rinse & massage the kale. Massage the kale taking a small handful at a time and rubbing it between your hands. You will notice the kale leaves get darker. This help to breakdown the fibers of the kale so it is a bit softer and easier to chew. Chop kale into bite size pieces.

Chop carrots, red cabbage, jicama and dice avocado.

If quinoa is prepared ahead of time it will be cool when added to salad. If not, no worries, fluff a bit more to help it cool and place in large salad bowl.

Add the rest of the ingredients and mix.
