Quinoa is an extremely versatile grain that boasts the benefits of being a complete protein source (all 9 essential amino acids), containing complex carbs, and is high in fibre! Quinoa cooks quickly and can be added to virtually any dish. This quinoa chickpea salad comes together fast, stores great, and is convenient for a quick lunch during the week! It is very customizable giving you a great base to add other items and swap out as you choose. I like to add an extra protein source to a serving such as chicken or shrimp to create a balanced meal and keep me satisfied.


  • 1 cup dry quinoa

  • 1 can (540ml) chickpeas, drained and rinsed ( I used Compliments brand)

  • ½ of a large english cucumber, chopped

  3. Whisk together dressing ingredients

  4. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and pour dressing overtop, mixing thoroughly
