Quinoa salad

A super healthy, light and delicious salad with quinoa, avocado and peppers. This salad is rich in vitamins, tastes amazing and it's perfect for vegans.

Recipe (2 portions)


  • 150 gr quinoa
  • 100 gr very small broccoli florets
  • 1 yellow pepper and 1 red pepper
  • 2 avocados (ripe)
  • The zest and juice of 2 limes
  • 1 fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Add the quinoa in a bowl with cold water and Let it soak for about 5 minutes.
  2. Discard the water and rinse the quinoa in order to remove its natural coating (saponin) which makes it taste bitter.
  3. Transfer the quinoa to a pot with boiling water and let it cook for 15-20 minutes.
  4. While quinoa is cooking, we'll make the salad and dressing (vinaigrette).
  5. Add the olive oil, the lime zest and juice, the honey (or maple syrup) and 20 grams of grated ginger into a bowl and whisk. Season with salt and pepper. Our salad dressing is ready!
  6. Cut the peppers, the avocados and the broccoli in small pieces and mix with the salad dressing.
  7. When quinoa is ready (do not overboil!), drain the water and rinse it to cool it off.
  8. Add it to the bowl with the salad, mix and add mint leaves (whole or finely chopped). Season to taste and serve 🙂
