Ingredients: 2dl red quinoa (uncooked) 1dl chick peas rinsed 1/2 cucumber cut in cubes 2 big seeded tomatoes 2-3 scallions 150 g feta cheese 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon dried oregano 1-2 tablespoons sun flower seeds ½ teaspoon of Himalayan salt 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar juice of half a lemon ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper broccoli sprouts (optional) Boil the quinoa according to the instructions on the pack (average 15-20 min) and set it aside to cool. Seed & chop the tomatoes in small cubes, chop the cucumber and the scallions. Crumble the feta cheese. In a big bowl combine all the ingredients except from the broccoli sprouts and mix them well together. Add the broccoli sprouts on top of the dish when serving. If possible, leave the salad in the fridge for an hour or two before serving, this will make the flavors more intense. Serves 4.
