I love the flavors in this simple salad where mixed quinoa is enjoyed with fresh tomato and cucumber. The star of the show is the rich tamari flavor that comes through. This substantial lunch option can be served warm or chilled.

Chef’s Tips:

  • Tamari is a gluten-free soy sauce. However, if you have a soy allergy, coconut aminos are a great alternative.
  • How you like your boiled eggs is a personal thing. For soft-boiled eggs, 6 minutes will suffice. For hard-boiled eggs, 9-10 minutes should do it.
