Ingredients
  • For the salad:
  • 1 broccoli (about 500g)
  • 80g (1/2 cup) of white quinoa
  • 40g (1/4 cup) of almonds
  • For the almond dressing:
  • 3 tablespoons of almond butter
  • the juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of grainy mustard
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons of water
Instructions
  1. Place the broccoli in a food processor and pulse 2 – 3 times until roughly broken apart. Add to a large salad bowl. Place the almonds into the food processor and pulse a few times until they are roughly broken apart. If you don’t have a food processor, roughly chop both the broccoli and the almonds with a knife.
  2. Cook the quinoa with 160ml of water and a dash of apple cider vinegar for about 10 – 12 minutes. Fluff with a fork and add it to the broccoli and almonds.
  3. Mix all of the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl and whisk with a fork until a homogenous dressing forms. Add more water if it is too thick for your liking.
  4. Add the dressing to the salad and mix everything well.
