I use Kroger tri-color quinoa - multi color and faro. I'm all about simple and simple clean up. I cook them together in one pot following the directions on the package for the correct amount of liquid. If you are in a rush you can cool this quickly on a large cookie sheet and place it in your fridge or freezer for quick cooling. While the quinoa and farrow are cooking prepare your veggies. While it is cooling - I do my kitchen clean up! This can also serve as a great lunch or dinner by adding grilled chicken or fish. Packed with protein and low in fat. I don't use any oil.


Cook quinoa and farro together with bullion cubes and water as directed on package. Cool. Chop and dice remaining ingredients and add. Juice one lime add and season to taste with black pepper, cumin, salt. Any variety of fresh vegetables can be added. Consider fresh green beans, pea pods, thinly sliced radish, the options are limitless.
