Quinoa is by far one of the healthiest grains available and this easy preparation is one of my favorite ways to eat it. When I know that I’ll have a busy week, I make a big batch on Sunday night and eat it all week.

  • 1/2 cup raisins $2
  • 1 apple, cored and diced $0.50

  • 1 small bunch parsley, chopped $1
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced Pantry
  • 1 tbsp olive oil Pantry
  • juice of one lemon $0.50
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry

Recipe Serves 2-4


  1. Cook quinoa according to directions. Refrigerate for 15 minutes to lower temperature.
  2. Toss together cooked, cooled quinoa, pine nuts, raisins, sausage, apple, parsley, and garlic. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Stir gently to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Oh my gosh that looks so good Gabi! This would be wonderful to take to the office for lunch—and I love it that quinoa is so high in protein—

This was GREAT!!!

Only… the instructions leave out the sausage… Might want to include that ;-)

Also, I used a Tofurky Sausage, which made it kosher. Slammin!!!
