Camping with Quinoa

27 Jul

I love having salad’s waiting for me to eat during the summer.  No one wants to stop the fun of swimming and playing to make a big meal.  At least I don’t.

Sooooo, I have a great recipe for you to keep in your fridge or for you to take on your next camping trip.  I brought this one on our trip last weekend and it kept fine and tasted great.  Here is the recipe:

Citrus Quinoa Salad


  1. Soak 1 C Quinoa in water 10 min
  2. Bring to simmer 1 cup veg broth 2/3 Cup watr
  3. Strain Quinoa and add to pot bring to simmer 14 minutes.

Add :

3 peeled madarin oranges

1 cup grape tomatoes

½ Cup red pepper

2 tsp fresh basil

1Cup cooked black beans

If you have never had quinoa you should give it a try.
