I first saw this recipe on where else but Pinterest and could not wait to try it. It came from a site called the Diva Dish, which if you are interested at all in healthy, vegetarian cooking it is definitely a place to check out. The original recipe also calls for Avocado which is so great for you, but unfortunately I am allergic so I had to change things up a bit. I also chose to change out the lemon for lime because I think a lime/cilantro combination is heavenly.
1/2 C. dry quinoa
1 C. vegetable broth
1 can garbanzo beans (drained and rinsed)
1 c. cherry tomatoes cut in half
2 C. spinach
1 bunch cilantro
1/4 C. onion
2 small cloves garlic
For the dressing:
Juice of 2 limes
2 tsp. dijon mustard
2 tsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. cumin
dash of salt and pepper
While the quinoa is cooking, rinse the garbanzo beans and put them into a large bowl.
Once the quinoa is cooked add it to the garbanzo mixture.
Top with the dressing, mix well and chill for approximately 1 hour.
