Free Healthy Recipe - Quinoa, Pistachio and Rose Petal Salad

Dairy free, Gluten free, Low fat, Low GI, Wheat Free

Copyright Penelope Beveridge

Combining these ingredients together feels more like art than cooking, but then again cooking is an art in itself. Gluten intolerants will also enjoy this pretty salad that is delicious served with grilled lamb, chicken or haloumi and vegetable kebabs.

1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
2 cups water
½ lemon juiced
½ cup mint, chopped
¼ cup pistachios, slivered
¼ cup rose petals
½ cup parsley, chopped finely

Place the quinoa in a pan with the water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cover with a lid. Cook for 15 minutes.
Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

Toss through the cucumber, mint, lemon juice, pistachios, rose petals and parsley and season with salt and pepper.
