  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon mint leaves fresh, chopped


  • Over medium-high heat, bring water and quinoa to a boil, reduce heat to a low-boil, cover and cook approximately 15 minutes or until quinoa has absorbed most of the water. Turn off the heat and leave the covered quinoa on the burner for another 5 minutes. Allow to cool then refrigerate until chilled.
