Lemon Garlic Summer Quinoa Salad

So simple. So refreshing. So delish.

I used:

3/4 cup quinoa
1/4 cup bulgur wheat (because I didn't have enough quinoa)
1 package frozen edamame 
1 lemon
minced garlic to taste (we used a few tablespoons of the jar kind, but we're garlic freaks)

Rinse the quinoa and combine with the bulgur wheat in a sauce pan- add two cups of water and boil. Let simmer until tender. 

In another saucepan, boil the edamame. 

Combine in saucepan, add the juice of one lemon and garlic. 


This is a really basic, simple and clean recipe- feel free to dress it up however you like! We made up a plain batch as described above, and then took turns customizing our bowls- great with soy sauce, hot sauce, seasoned salt...etc. Add your favorite condiment! Great as a side or as a meal.
