Herbed Quinoa Salad (Low-fat, Oil-free)

  • Author: Jasmine Briones / Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1-2


  • 1 cup red quinoa, cooked
  • 1/2 cup arugula
  • 1/4 cup mint
  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbs organic peas
  • 1 1/2 tbs pine nuts (optional, I omitted)
  • 6 grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • Fresh black pepper


  1. Add the arugula, mint, parsley, 2 tbs peas, nuts if using, lemon juice and fresh black pepper into a food processor. Run until as fine as you can get it. You will need to stop and scrape down the side a few times if you have a large processor. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add in the quinoa and mixture from the food processor, and mix until uniform and covered. Add in the remaining ingredients and toss until combined.
