Ginger and Coconut Quinoa Salad Recipe. This creamy, flavourful, delicious dish is vegan, gluten free and full of nourishing ingredients.

Today I would like to share a different kind of recipe with you. One of my favourite savoury dishes. Ginger and Coconut Quinoa Salad. This is something I usually make ahead of time and take to work for a delicious healthy lunch. Although it also makes for a fuss free dinner when your short of time. It’s incredibly filling on it’s own or makes a great filler for wraps. Or served with your favourite protein.

 Ginger and coconut take the quinoa to the next level. So simple but full of flavour and totally satisfying. The quinoa is simmered in coconut milk until creamy, the ginger adds a burst of flavour and the almonds and edamame add some crunch.

This really is delicious and is incredibly nutritious with tons of fibre and protein. Quinoa has about 9 grams of protein per cup and is considered a “complete” protein, because it contains all the essential amino acids. Quinoa will also give you a hit of iron, folate and calcium.
