This side (or even main) is so easy to make and super flavorful. It can also make a nice school lunch or even breakfast with a fried egg on top.


  • 1 pack of quinoa
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 tbsp of mint leaves
  • 2 tbsp of chives
  • 2 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Cook the  quinoa according to packaging instructions.
Make the dressing by putting all the other ingredients in a small food processor and pulse.
Pour the dressing over the quinoa (when still warm) and toss until all the ingredients are coated. Transfer the quinoa to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve.
