RECIPE IDEA: Roasted Eggplant Quinoa Salad / Vegan + Gluten Free + Dairy Free
Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, giving you a new recipe, Roasted Eggplant Quinoa Salad. I made it in about 25 minutes and it’s excellent at room temperature, cold, or hot. Great nutrition, too! Low calorie, filling, and so good.
Roast the Eggplant
I used two small eggplants, dicing and roasting them in a little olive oil and salt. Roasting brings out the flavor. It’s so good. I especially like roasting the small eggplants (maybe they are Japanese eggplants or just baby eggplants?) because they stay firmer when you cook them. The bigger the eggplant, the mushier the inside is. You have to work hard to cook the large eggplants properly. But the small ones are simple.
This Roasted Eggplant Quinoa Salad a little bit tangy from the lemon juice. Delicious!
Try it with Egg
I had it for lunch today. Super good that way.
I like this new trend of putting an egg on top of salads. What do you think? Of course, then it’s not vegan. But it is creamy.
