Lunch box: sweet and savory salad with bulgur, quinoa, grapes and avocado

Quinoa bulgur salad with grapes and avocado 32

My kitchen is one of the most of the important place at home. I like to have a lot of accessories, always trying to find what is new, what is trendy… and trust me there are a lot of things going on when you are connected to social media…..

Always trying new things and sometimes I can end up with something really surprising. It is what’s happened this other day when I was trying to mix some leftover. I decided to cook a mix of bulgur and white & red quinoa and to match it with fresh grapes and avocado. To make sure that this new salad is ticking all the boxes, I added on top of it some mixed seeds (mix of Tournesol seeds, pumpkin and pin). That was a nice discovery and the mix of sweet and salty was delicious. So if you are bored with your traditional salad, try this one, it will wake you up.

  • Start by cooking the mix of quinoa and bulgur, following the instructions were written on the packaging (usually you need to steam the cereals for 12 minutes)

! You need to start by that step because it is taking time to cook quinoa and then you need to let cool down in order to avoid to cook the grapes
