This dish may not be much to look at but it is delicious and versatile. It makes a great breakfast or snack. I actually ate several forkfuls before dinner last night. I couldn’t resist. You’ve got sweet, tart strawberries mingling with the buttery pecans and the quinoa is right there binding it all together. Amazing. And so simple!
1 cup quinoa, prepared according to the package instructions
1 cup chopped strawberries
1 cup chopped and lightly toasted pecans
juice of 1 lemon
1 Tablespoon honey
Directions: Cook the quinoa, drain off any excess water and chill until cool to touch.
Lightly toast the chopped pecans and allow to cool to room temperature.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and honey to make the dressing.
In a separate mixing bowl combine the quinoa, strawberries, pecans and honey/lemon dressing. Toss until well combined.
This is such an easy dish to throw together anytime you like. Enjoy!
