Quinoa salad with asparagus and faba beans
300 g quinoa
500 g green asparagus
500 g fresh faba beans
250 g cherry tomatos
Cook the quinoa as per instructions on the package (usually 2 portions water for 1 portion of quinoa) and set it aside. Remove the faba beans from the pods, clean the asparagus and cut them in 1 cm pieces keeping the tops aside. Steam faba beans and asparagus for 3-4 minutes. Once the faba beans are cooked remove the peel. Cut the tomatos in halves or pieces depending on the size. Mix the vegetables with the quinoa, season with salt, pepper and olive oil and serve lukewarm.
