Quinoa is basically an edible seed that is grown in the form of crops. Quinoa is very popular for its nutrient composition.
It has quite a favorable amount of amino acids, calcium, phosphorous and iron.
Having read a lot about quinoa, I was ready to make a recipe by using veggies and quinoa.
I wasted no time and immediately ordered quinoa online and within days, I got my pack of quinoa.
I thought of pairing quinoa along with paneer so that Grilled Paneer Quinoa Salad tastes more tender and yummier.
The best part is that for making this Salad is that I have kept oil in check.
Instead of using the usual oil, I have carefully used extra virgin olive oil so that Quinoa Grilled Paneer Salad becomes more salubrious. I have grilled the paneer instead of frying it, you see!
