Ripe Papaya With Quinoa Recipe

Cooking and incorporating papaya in your diet can be fun and easy. Here is a recipe from our kitchen that is fast and PapayaLicious.

Lighten up with a nutrient-packed fresh snack or side dish of Quinoa with Papaya. Papaya is naturally low in sugar and using honey or agave is also low glycemic.

Quinoa is full of nutrition and has been used for thousands of years, it's a grain that has protein in it, yes PROTEIN!

This recipe is gluten-free friendly too. 

Here are the ingredients:

1 cup Quinoa
1 ½ Cup Water
Organic Papaya Cubed
A Handful of Pecans or Walnuts Chopped
Handful Fresh Chopped Mint (optional)
Dash Himalayan or Celtic Salt
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp. raw unpasteurized honey or agave nectar (vegan option)

Soak the quinoa for five minutes. Then cook the quinoa with a cup and a half of water with a dash of salt for 15 minutes.
Set aside and let cool. Chop papaya, nuts, and mint and mix in cooled quinoa. Add olive oil, lemon juice, and honey to sweeten the mixture.

Cool and enjoy.
