1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 large organic cucumber, washed, peeled and sliced
½ cup flat leaf parsley or cilantro (or combo)
Juice of a lemon


Heat a small saucepan and place quinoa in it without water. Cook, shaking the pan to slightly toast the quinoa-it will begin to smell nutty.

Reduce heat and simmer covered on low for approx. 13-15 minutes until water is absorbed and quinoa is fluffy.
