Sprouted Quinoa Tabouleh

So we haven’t had AC in our house since Friday.  I live in Texas.  It’s July.  So, yeah, it’s pretty much an oven in our house.  Needless to say, we haven’t been staying in the house since Saturday.  Friday night I slept with an ice pack on my stomach and woke up Saturday hoping the AC man could work his magic.  As is our luck, we need some random, special part that can’t be ordered until today, so hopefully we’ll be back in the house today, but are preparing for tomorrow.

Anyway, all that to say, I haven’t been doing too much food preparing in the last few days.  I did sprout some quinoa Saturday morning and brought it with me when we fled the home-turned-sauna and have been enjoying a simple sprouted quinoa salad for the past couple of days. Pardon the low quality of my camera phone pic:

 Not really a specific recipe – just mix some lemon juice, olive oil and salt and let the quinoa marinate in the dressing for a bit.  Then stir in cucumbers and tomatoes and enjoy!   Sprouted quinoa has a texture akin to sesame seeds and is a nice contrast to the cucumbers and tomatoes.  It keeps well in the fridge for a couple of days and has been nice and refreshing on these hot summer days.
