Green bean & Zucchini Quinoa Salad

Sunday, August 31, 2014


Yesterday I made this easy, quick(less then 20min with prep) and healthy quinoa salad with veggies. As I wrote in earlier posts, I tend to eat dinner quite late as I don't have lunch until 4pm at least so dinner is usually around 9pm so I really want to keep it fat free, nutritious and light so I can fall a sleep normally.

This recipe you'll really like. If you haven't tried to prepare quinoa again it's quite easy actually, you just cook it the same way you would rice. You can get quinoa in any grocery store or bio store like Bio & Bio or dm in Croatia or pretty much any grocery store in Western Europe or US.




INGREDIENTS:

2 tea spoons of olive oil
1 cup of quinoa
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 zucchini sliced into thin pieces
Handful of sliced almonds
Handful of thin green beans
Lime juice
1/2 cup of sprouts 
1/2 teaspoon of oregano
Salt & pepper per taste

Optional:
5-6 sliced cherry tomatoes
Greek feta cheese cut in small cubes

PREPARATION: 
1. Cook 1 cup of quinoa for about 15min. in 2 cups of water. In the meantime wash and cut the vegetables. 
2. Combine all ingredients in a a medium wok, sauté all ingredients on olive oil over medium heat until heated thru and softened about 5-10 minutes, spice them with oregano, salt and pepper per taste. 
3. Lay veggies over quinoa, drizzle lime juice over the vegetables and add feta cheese.

Bon appetit!
