Quinoa salad/Salata de quinoa

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

Quinoa este una dintre cele mai nutritive cereale cunoscute la această oră. In Bolivia este numita “mama cerealelor”  deoarece nu contine gluten, este un produs cu continut foarte mare in proteine, un bun susbstitut al pastelor, cus-cus-ului sau orezului. Are un gust subtil si este usor crocanta. Se foloseste chiar si in faina fara gluten si este utilizata in prajituri cat si in panificatie.

Eu folosesc quinoa destul de des, mai ales in salate sau cand fac paine.

Am o reteta foarte simpla de quinoa pe care o sa v-o prezint in cateva cuvinte.

Ingrediente pentru 2 persoane (va iesi un bol plin cu salata)

1 cana quinoa (uscata)

2 cani apa

un praf sare

2-3 rosii (Roma) sau alt soi

o mana de patrunjel verde

piper

2-3 linguri ulei de masline

castravete crud (jumatate dintr-un castravete englezesc, cel lung)

sucul de la o lamaie

ardei gras (optional)

Mod de preparare:

Se fierbe quinoa intr-o cratita cu fundul mai gros. Se pun deodata apa cu sarea si quinoa. Se fierbe cat sa se umfle quinoa putin, apoi se stinge focul si se acopera cu un capac ca sa se umfle complet.

Se lasa la racit si intre timp, stoarcem sucul de la o lamaie, tocam marunt patrunjelul, castarvetele si rosiile cubulete si apoi amestecam usor toate ingredientele cu quinoa. Adaugam sare si piper dupa gust si putin ulei de masline.

Este delicioasa si se poate servi alaturi de o friptura iar pentru vegani este suficienta ea insasi!

Pofta buna!

With its mild flavor, light crunch and impressive protein content, quinoa is the perfect gluten-free substitute for pasta, rice or couscous. It’s also frequently milled into gluten-free flour that can be used in baking, or as the base for gluten-free pastas, cereals and more. Quinoa is also a complete protein, which means it provides all nine essential amino acids necessary for good health. I will give you here a simple recipe, that you can use as a side dish, served with a good steak or other type of meat.
