Quinoa Salad

3 comments

Hello everyone! Here I am with my first recipe: quinoa salad with surprising quenelles.

Ingredients:
for the quinoa salad:
white quinoa
extra virgin olive oil
the juice of half a lemon
rocket
tomatoes
red onion
salt
pepper
for quenelles:
a medium sized red cabbage
4-5 cloves of garlic
extra virgin olive oil
a few tablespoons of vegetable broth (I use the home made veg stock)
salt and pepper
sesame seeds
chive

Method:
For the salad: after having washed very well the quinoa to remove the bitter substance of which it is covered (saponin), boil it in salted water.
When it is ready (you can tell because the white seed comes out), drain and let it cool a bit.
Season with a tablespoon of olive oil, the juice of half a lemon (or less, if you do not like a sour taste), chopped rocket, chopped onion and cherry tomatoes cut into quarters, add salt and pepper if necessary.
Let it stand in the fridge for at least a hour so that flavors can blend in well.
For quenelles: in a no stick pan fry a little olive oil, the cloves of garlic, then add red cabbage, cut into strips, and cook it until done with the help of a few spoonfuls of broth.
Once ready, remove it from the heat, let it cool and purée into a thick cream with the hand blender (you may need more tablespoons of veg broth) and … as if by magic, the mixture turns to blue-violet!
Serve quinoa and prepare  the quenelles with “mashed cabbage”, which you’ll decorate with sesame seeds and chives.
Provecho!

    Excellent!!! The quenelles are great!! The colour is unbelievable, it’s great to amaze guests. You actually opened me a world, as I’m thinking about a lot of dishes which I can “turn” blu by magic 🙂
