Recipe Ingredient Details:
1 cup quinoa (washed very well)
2 cups lightly brewed green tea
1 pinch sea salt
1/4 cup fresh or frozen organic corn kernels
1/2 cup very finely diced scallion

3-4 sprigs parsley, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons flaxseed oil
1-2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 small handful broccoli sprouts
Place quinoa and brewed green tea in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Add salt, corn, scallion, garlic, and carrot; reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until all liquid is absorbed, about 15–18 minutes.
Add parsley, flaxseed oil, and lemon juice; fluff with a fork. Serve warm or at room temperature, garnished with broccoli sprouts.
