Having this quinoa salad in the fridge is one of the best things ever especially when you need a light quick snack. I usually make 2 cups of this and keep it in the fridge until it is gone by the end of the week. Quinoa is a great replacement for most carbs – it is rich in fiber, minerals, antioxidants and improves your blood sugar.
Quinoa is a complete protein, meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids. It is one of the most protein-rich plant foods. It also is high in iron and magnesium so if you like the taste of it, you should make this weekly like me!
Start by adding the quinoa and the chicken broth in the instant pot and pressure cook on high for 1 minute. Do not quick release – let the pot naturally release.
Meanwhile chop veggies and place the garbanzo beans, parsley, pepper and feta cheese in a large bowl. Make the dressing in a separate bowl.
When the quinoa is done, add the quinoa in the bowl with the veggies and pour the dressing in. Mix well.
