How to Make this Recipe

For this recipe, you're going to need the following:

This dish is super simple to create. Using Trifecta a la carte ingredients, all you need to do is piece everything together and enjoy! Start by prepping the following:

  • Finely dice scallions
  • Chop parsley leaves and stems
  • Coarsely chop almonds
  • Juice one lemon  

For the quinoa, you may want to warm it in the microwave for about a minute to help it break up evenly. You can also warm the broccoli some if you don't want the grain salad to be cold. 

Tip: Add in chili flakes for more spice and seasoning.

Toss everything together in a large mixing bowl and top with nutritional yeast to finish it off. Portion out your salad into meal prep containers or bowls for serving. 

Tip: Swap in cheddar cheese instead of nutritional yeast for a vegetarian version of this recipe

Enjoy this recipe as a hearty and filling main dish or serve as a side salad alongside your favorite vegan recipes (vegan mac and cheese anyone?). Here are some of my favorite ways to keep it interesting.

Healthy pairings and swaps:

  • Top with baked or roasted tofu for even more protein and oomph.
  • Swap in your favorite dried fruit instead of figs, like cherries, black currants, or raisins.
  • Swap out the almonds for any nut like pistachios or peanuts. 
  • Change up the flavors with different herbs like cilantro, mint, and basil.
