This is probably the trendiest and most fulfilling salad you can eat, with energizing power ingredients such as kale, quinoa and pistachios. Napa cabbage is fresh and crunchy and contains vitamin A. Plus, you will find that serving it warm is very comforting.
1 cup of quinoa (rinse well out before use)
1 teaspoon of salt
1 ½ cup of water
2 cups of Napa Cabbage, thinly sliced
1 cup of kale, thinly sliced
½ a red pepper, cubed
2 green onions, thinly sliced
½ cup of roasted pistachios
1 lemon, juiced
¼ cup of olive oil
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Bring the water (and salt) to a boil and cook the quinoa on simmer for 15 minutes.
While the quinoa is cooking, prepare your vegetables and roast the pistachios (in the oven, a couple of minutes at Broil)
Transfer the cooked quinoa to a large salad bowl, incorporate the vegetables, mix well and add the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.
