This salad is a fantastic healthy lunch recipe if you are experimenting with vegan diet or want to increase levels of plant proteins and turn your eating habits into a balanced diet. Quinoa is a superfood due to its high levels of protein and good fats. It is an ancient seed brimming with B vitamins, Magnesium, Iron and fibre. It is a great idea to include it in your regular repertoire of healthy meals as it is very easy to cook and it goes with most vegetables, grains and herbs. Quinoa has a very mild texture which makes it a great companion to a super crunchy vegetable like carrot.
