Quinoa Sprout Salad

I have been looking for meat free alternatives for folks who are sulfur as well as sulfite sensitive, and as quinoa has lots of protein, I thought this one would be good for either a side or an entree.

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 4 Tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • Small handful pea sprouts, coarsely chopped

Cook the quinoa per the directions on the package (I used red quinoa because I like it, but the regular kind will do as well). Once done, mix the quinoa, vinegar, sesame oil salt and cayenne pepper thoroughly. Gently stir in the pea sprouts (if you don’t have pea sprouts, any of the more coarse sprouts would work – or you could go without in a pinch, but really it is worlds better with the greens in there!).  Yep – that’s it – serve warm and enjoy!!
