4 cup Quinoa, cooked (*)
1 bag (16 oz) Broccoli slaw
1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp Chili powder
1 tsp Salt and pepper (to taste)
1 tsp Coconut oil (for frying)


*To cook quinoa, bring 1 1/2 cups dry quinoa to a boil in 3 cups water and cook for about 20 minutes, until the water is absorbed. Refrigerate until completely cooled down.

Heat up the coconut oil in a large frying skillet over medium heat. Add the quinoa and toss around to get it heated up nicely (about 4-5 minutes), then add in the slaw mix. Cook until it’s done to your liking, tossing every couple of minutes. Add in the rest of the ingredients and keep tossing a bit until nicely coated.
