Got leftover quinoa? Not anymore! If you’re running out of ideas to incorporate in your diet, always go back to basics and try add fresh ingredients to quinoa. Quinoa doesn’t always have to be hot for it to be good. This is a great lunch recipe, ideal for those without access to a microwave or convection oven. Complex carbs + healthy fats + protein = a dish that can’t lose!
