Chickpeas and quinoa salad

This salad became one of my signature dishes. It’s light, great as a side dish with some protein or eaten by itself. This is my go to salad for my vegetarian and vegan friends.

Ingredients

2 cups of baby leaves spinach
½ cup cooked quinoa
½  cup cooked chickpeas
½ cup chopped marinated red peppers from jar
¼ cup nuts and seeds
Pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Precook quinoa ahead of time, so it will cool before you use it in this salad. Check my recipe on how to cook perfect quinoa, for nice and fluffy results.
  2. In the big bowl lay the spinach leaves. Top us with cooked and cooled quinoa, peppers, chickpeas and sprinkle the nuts and seeds on top.
  3. Dress with the juice from the roasted pepper or your favourite salad dressing. Add salt to taste.
  4. Enjoy

Note: If you want to add some meat than roasted chicken pieces or beef can be a nice addition.
