This nutrient-dense dish is packed with summer flavors like cucumber and citrus, but is about as "clean" as it gets. FYI, it also pairs wonderfully with salmon!


  • 2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup raw quinoa
  • ½ cup diced tomatoes
  • ½ cup cucumber, chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Combine uncooked quinoa and broth in a stovetop pot and place on a cold burner.
  2. Turn the burner to high and bring to a boil. Then reduce to a simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed. Keep the lid on during cooking.
  3. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork, and let rest, about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and stir.
  5. Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. This will allow flavors to continue to develop.
