The Incidental Glutenarian: Quinoa Meal Salad

What an unoriginal name.

This is just about my favourite gluten-free lunch food. It's fast, easy, very healthy, and very delicious.

Put in 1/4 quinoa with 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil, and then lower to simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the cute little curly quinoa tails come out to play.

meanwhile: search for salad veggies. Cut up:
baby carrots
bell peppers
baby spinach
small cubes of the cheese of your choice

Throw all this in a bowl with the warm quinoa and add some salad nuts like sesame seeds, flaxeeds, or whatever you've got and stir up with a couple of tablespoons of hummus.

Sounds weird, I know, but trust me. It's freakin' delicious.
