Here's an easy salad bowl that I made today by cooking red lentils and quinoa together and when it was cooked I added chopped cucumber baby plum tomatoes and chopped white onion with a little chopped coriander and black pepper. I would have added chopped sweet peppers but forgot to buy some.
I love how quinoa looks when cooked with those little curls, quinoa is also a complete food as it contains all the base amino acids, lentils are also very healthy and a great source of magnesium and folic acid which are essential for the absorption of calcium.
This is a simple but very tasty and nutritious meal and as far as carbs go one portion of quinoa contains 20g carbs of which 3g is fibre so a portion of quinoa contains 17g of carbs net.
This is also gluten free and plant based and we are what we eat...😊
