BROCCOLI, SHRIMP AND QUINOA SALAD








This is a very simple,easy to prepare,filling, nutritious and yummy salad. 
I must say, the taste of Quinoa by adding a pinch of salt and sugar in it is just fabulous.If you had not tried it,please try.


Then in this I used large florets of broccoli because my daughter like to hold each floret in hand and will have it saying she is eating a tree. You can chop it if you prefer.

Broccoli-----------------------10 large florets ( or as needed)
Frozen cooked shrimp-----1/4 cup
Cooked sweet corn--------1/4 cup
Salt ----------------------------1/4 tsp or as needed
Sugar--------------------------1/4 tsp
Black pepper powder------a pinch
Olive oil-----------------------1 tbsp

METHOD

  1. Pressure cook quinoa in the same way you cook rice.(1cup quinoa:2 cups water)
  2. Add a pinch of salt and sugar to the cooked quinoa and fluff it with a fork.Check the tatse and adjust accordingly.
  3. Now, in a medium heat pan add olive oil and slightly saute shrimp with a pinch of salt and pepper powder in it.Keep it aside.
