A protein-packed, healthy & flavorful summer salad
Quinoa, the base of this recipe, is not only packed with nutrients, but it's also a great source of protein! It contains all nine essential amino acids (which we need to find from a food source as they are not produced by our bodies) and it's also a great grain to cook with as it can be easily incorporated into both hot and cold recipes!
This curried quinoa salad is perfect to use with a base of greens, in a wrap, or on its own! The combination of curry, cumin, and turmeric, along with the raisins and veggies, make a delightful flavor combination and provide a refreshing and healthy summer meal.
