Place the quinoa in a fine mesh strainer and rinse under cold, running water. Bring the quinoa, salt and water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
Once done, stir in the chick peas, tomatoes, garlic, lime juice and olive oil. Season with cumin, salt and pepper. Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley to serve.
this is excellent! To cook the quinoa, I used vegetable stock instead of water - and added some sundried tomatoes (in addition to the fresh ones), kalamata olives and fresh basil for extra flavour. Great healthy recipe! - 28 Feb 2014
