Red Quinoa Summer Salad with Green Beans

  • 1C Red Quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 C chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2-4 T olive oil
  • 1/2 C chopped summer squash
  • 1 C fresh green beans
  • salt and pepper or  *Seasonello

NOTE: Fresh vegetables taste best in this recipe.

  • Bring rinsed quinoa to a boil in broth. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for approximately 15 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed.
  • Meanwhile, sauté the squash in olive oil for a few minutes, then add the green beans and sauté approximately one to two more minutes.  The green beans add a refreshing crunch to the salad. Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Add the cooked red quinoa into the sauté pan and thoroughly combine with the vegetables.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper or Seasonello.

*Seasonello can be found on Amazon or at some specialty olive oil stores.
