  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 4 cups lettuce, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Rinse the quinoa under cold water. In a medium pot, combine 2 cups of water and the quinoa. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
  2. While the quinoa is cooking, wash and chop the lettuce into bite-sized pieces.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped lettuce and sauté for about 2-3 minutes until it starts to wilt.
  4. Add the cooked quinoa to the skillet with the lettuce. Toss everything together until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Divide the quinoa and lettuce mixture evenly among four plates. Drizzle with a little extra olive oil if desired.
