Ingredients

1 ½ cups quinoa
dry
1 jalapeño pepper
seeded and minced
*
½ cup red onion
or as needed, finely chopped
½ mangos
hard but firm, peeled and diced
*
2 ½ tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin
salt
to taste
*
1 tablespoon lime juice
plus 1 teaspoon, fresh
1 bunch basil
leaves, freshly shredded
*
½ cup cilantro
freshly and roughly torn

Directions

Rinse quinoa well in a strainer, and drain well. Add in a medium-size pot and pour in 3 cups of water.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until quinoa is cooked, tender and translucent, and most of the water has been absorbed, about 15 minutes. Drain.

In a large serving bowl, stir together jalapeno, onion, mango, oil, salt and lime juice until well mixed. Stir in quinoa until evenly distributed. Season with salt.

Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled. Right before serving, gently stir in basil and cilantro.
