I try to discover new ingredients for dinners and some never heard of. Found this new ingredient called quinoa and looked interesting as these are seeds & not cereals.
Went on a hunt to the grocery shop and found it in the organic section (so the double healthy version). Don’t know from where I became this health freak especially when I still love to eat deep fried things :p
- Quinoa seeds – 1/2 cup
- Grated cucumber – 3/4th cup
Finely chopped onions – 1/4th cup
Olive Oil – 1 tsp
Crushed pepper & salt to taste
Finely chopped mint leaves
Wash quinoa seeds and drain. Boil the quinoa seeds in water for about 5-10 minutes and strain.
Mix all the remaining ingredients.
I had this with grilled salmon for extra filling ;).
PS : Most of the time I am so excited to cook and eat that my photos turn out to be an after thought, which is clearly reflected in all my recipe blogs. On way to improve.
