All I have to say is – when the number one placed result for this dish from google tells you to leave the lid off when you cook quinoa, you might be impressed and persuaded to do so. I’m here to tell you google favors blogs for the weirdest reasons, and none of them is good writing or good recipes for that matter. Put the lid on the damn quinoa, and add on to your life span.

This here is your basic quinoa salad. It’s pretty darn delicious for healthy food.
