Quinoa Flax Salad Power Bowl Recipe

Salads can get boring. Especially when you eat well and are a health-conscious person.

Choosing the greenest item at restaurants often means settling for a salad, missing out on some of the more interesting and unique dishes lower down on the menu.

We believe that salads should never be boring! And eating greens can always be fun, exciting, and different.

Instructions

  1. Prepare the quinoa and adzuki beans. Cook the quinoa with 1.5 cups of water. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Cook the adzuki beans in a small pot of water for 30 minutes, or until the beans are soft. If using canned beans, simply rinse them off under cold water.
  3. While the quinoa and adzuki beans are cooking, mix the flax oil, lemon juice, honey/maple syrup, and sea salt together.
  4. Massage the kale together with ½ of the dressing.
  5. Toss in the cucumbers.
  6. When the quinoa and adzuki beans are cooked, mix them together. Mix in the green onions, goji berries, parsley and cilantro. Add sea salt to taste.
  7. Serve the quinoa and adzuki beans with the kale. Add more dressing if needed. You can store the leftover dressing in the refrigerator for a week to use on another salad!
  8. Top with sunflower and pumpkin seeds.
