Quinoa salad

New super food which is vegan and full of antioxidants is Quinoa.This time when B went to U.S, I requested him to bring a small pack of quinoa assuming it will be cheaper there, but to my surprise it is expensive everywhere!
Qunioa is very versatile food and can be used in different ways.

How to cook quinoa

Soak 1/2 cup  in water for 30 minutes and then cook them in a deep vessel with 1cup water and salt until fluffy and soft. This will look like rice grain.
