Cilantro Quinoa Salad

1 1/2 cups water

1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed

1/2 cup minced or shredded carrots (whichever you prefer)
1/2 english cucumber seeds removed and chopped
1 tbs minced red onion
1 tomato diced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Juice of one lime (or more if you prefer)
salt and pepper to taste
chili flakes (optional)

Pour the water into a saucepan, and cover with a lid. Bring to a boil over high heat, then pour in the quinoa, recover, and continue to simmer over low heat until the water has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Scrape into a mixing bowl, and chill in the refrigerator until cold.

once the quinoa is chilled add chopped vegetables, salt and pepper and lime juice and chili flakes (optional).
