400 calories/serving


1 cup quinoa 150 g
3 green onions/scallions, minced
3 tomatoes, seeds removed and diced into cubes 360 g
1 bunch Italian parsley, fresh, coarsely chopped 100 g
20 leaves fresh mint, coarsely chopped 1 g
1/2 green peppers, diced into small cubes 80 g
1/2 cucumbers, medium size, diced into small cubes 130 g
2 1/4 cups chickpeas/garbanzo beans (canned), well rinsed 560 mL
2 carrots, grated 200 g
2/3 cup olive oil 170 mL
1 cup creamy soy preparation for cooking 250 mL
1/4 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1 1/2 lemon
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]


  1. Soak quinoa for a few seconds in a bowl of water and rinse. Strain through a cheesecloth-lined colander. Cook the quinoa in 1 ½ time its volume of unsalted water (salt is added after cooking) for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes, with the lid on, so it can swell up.
  2. Place all the salad ingredients (ingredients 1 to 9) including cooked quinoa in a bowl and mix well. Mix the ingredients for the vinaigrette with a whisk and season well. Let stand for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Just before serving, drizzle vinaigrette on the salad and toss.
