Red Quinoa and Grapefruit Breakfast Salad
2 cups red quinoa (sprouted or cooked)
1 large stalk of celery
1 cup of yellow beet, diced
3 cups of kale, shredded
1 1/2 grapefruit sectioned and cut in bite size pieces
1/2 grapefruit, juiced
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
*optional- 1-2 tbs olive oil, or flax seed oil
garnish with goji berries and sunflower microgreens
If you are cooking: prepare quinoa according to directions. Generally, 1 cup of quinoa + 2 cups of liquid =4 servings. To cook quinoa-
rinse quinoa under cold water, until water runs clear. Place quinoa and water in a medium saucepan.
Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook until liquid is absorbed and the germ has spiraled out (about 20 minutes). Allow quinoa to cool before adding in the raw salad ingredients.
To sprout Quinoa:
Soak desired amount in cool water over nite. Rinse in the morning. Set aside in a fine mesh colander to sprout for 24 hours. Sprouts are ready when the tail is as long as the seed!
Meanwhile, prep veggies as recommended above. Add in the sectioned, cut grapefruit. In a mason jar, mix the salad dressing ingredients- give it a gentle shake! Blend all ingredients together. Garnish with goji berries and sunflower microgreens. The salad will last 3-5 days in your fridge...ready for breakfast or a light lunch.
