Garlicky Quinoa and Garbanzo Bean Salad


  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat.
  2. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Scrape the cooked quinoa into a mixing bowl.
  4. Add the garbanzo beans, broccoli, garlic, lemon juice, tarragon, mustard, and olive oil.
  5. Stir until evenly mixed. Season to taste with salt and black pepper before serving.
