Hardy Sprouted Quinoa + Greens

I am trying to get more sprouts into my diet, so I sprouted some quinoa. Now, what to do with it? Here is what I came up and it’s tasty!

Romaine
Red cabbage
Chopped veggies such as:
Tomato
Mushroom
Carrot
Cucumber
Red pepper
Asparagus
Onion
(Or use your favorite veggies or whatever you find in your fridge)
½ to 1 cup sprouted quinoa
½ avocado
½ t mustard
1 T chopped fresh herbs (I used parsley and oregano)
2 T cider vinegar
1 clove pressed garlic
Salt and pepper to taste

Put some romaine in a bowl. Add a little red cabbage. Layer on a few tomatoes. This is your base.

Dice the remaining veggies and put in a bowl. Add the quinoa.

Mash the avocado with a fork, add vinegar and mix. Add the mustard, chopped herbs, pressed garlic, and salt and pepper. Mix well. Add a bit of water to thin and extend the dressing.

Add the dressing to the veggie/quinoa bowl and mix to coat. Use this to top the base. Top the veggies with a fresh sprig of herbs or other veggies to fancy it up. This salad is filling and will stay with you for a while! Enjoy!
