Recipe Notes

The quinoa used in the photo above is Canadian whole grain quinoa, which is typically a bit smaller in size than regular quinoa. If you prefer yours to be big and fluffy, use plain white quinoa.

This recipe uses Frescolio’s Lemon Infused EVOO and our Fig Dark Balsamic Vinegar. You could also use any of the following EVOOs or balsamic vinegars for a different taste:

Please note: since all of our balsamics contain a small percentage of wine vinegar, we cannot guarantee that they are all being sourced from a vegan wine filtration process. The same goes for our wine vinegars (our Apple Cider Vinegar is the only vinegar we carry that does not contain wine vinegar, making it certifiably vegan). As such, our balsamics and wine vinegars may not be suitable for vegans. All of our oils, excluding the Bacon Infused EVOO, are suitable for vegans.
