Ingredients for Quinoa:

¾ cup organic white quinoa

¼ cup red quinoa

2 TS olive oil

2 cups of water ( I use natural Spring  water in all my cooking )

Pinch of Sea salt

Cooking Instructions:

In a stainless steel pot pour olive oil and turn hit on. Slowly add white and red quinoa, cold water, and sea salt. When the water starts boiling, lower the flame and cook for 20 minutes. Do not stir the pot.

When it is ready, water should be completely absorbed by the quinoa.

Ingredients for Black Soy Beans:

½ cup of organic black soy beans

1 inch Kombu

1 pinch of sea salt

1.5 cups of water

Cooking Instructions:

Put beans in a glass or stainless steel bowl and add cold water. Let it soak for 6 – 10 hours. Discard this water, rinse well. Put kombu in the cooking pot; add soaked beans and water. When beans start boiling remove foam with skimmer , cover with lid and let them cook for 60 minutes. After beans are cooked they still should be covered with water.

  1. I made this salad. It was delicious. Easy to make and very satisfying. The only ingredient hard to get was umeboshi. We got pickled plums in the korean market and used a blender to make a paste. I will add this salad to my repertoire. Thank you!
