This has been my quinoa experimenting week. Now that I’ve discovered that I love the texture and the nutty flavor, and that the nutritional benefits are extreme, I’ve been challenging myself to create even more recipes to use it in. This quick lunch recipe will be in our regular rotation. It turned out to be a delicious, inexpensive and veggie-packed meal that came together in minutes. It’s very simple to prepare and the flavor will be enhanced and get better after being in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight. This made a good-sized batch and we had sandwiches from it over the course of three days.
I think this would also be delicious and beautiful as the filling for stuffed tomatoes or yummy tucked inside a pita for a sandwich on the go. I used the veggies I had in the kitchen, so this is a recipe that will lend itself well to many variations and tastes. I WILL say that the cauliflower was a perfect texture complement and even gave the look of hard-boiled egg whites, so you might be able to pass it off as egg salad, if you have someone who doesn’t like trying new things. Also, the dressing can be decreased or increased, as suits your family’s palate. Some like their sandwiches drier, some moister. In my house. I have people on both extremes and so I try to meet somewhere in the middle. Quinoa Salad Sandwiches could become your favorite, healthy quick and easy lunch! Enjoy!
