Quinoa protein salad with turmeric & ginger tahini dressing

This salad is so delicious, healthy, yet really filling and full of plant-based protein. A nutritious choice you will enjoy any time of the year.

Works best with following dressings:

Ingredients (1 portion):

  • 100g cooked quinoa
  • 100g cooked chickpeas
  • 150g cucumber
  • 100g red bell pepper (that's about 1 medium size bell pepper)
  • 75g extra firm tofu
  • 50g red onion
  • 1 small minced garlic clove
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper
  • A generous drizzle of Dressini turmeric & ginger tahini dressing
  • Fresh parsley to garnish


Rinse well and cook 40g of quinoa, which is about 100g cooked. You can also buy the precooked variety to safe time.

Tip: Or to be more green you can make a bigger batch of the quinoa and freeze the rest. It defrosts really well and you can use it whenever you need.

Add the quinona to a large bowl together with 100g cooked chickpeas from a can (drain and wash first).

Then finely dice 150g cucumber, 100g red bell pepper and 75g extra firm tofu (about 0.5cm in size)

Chop up 50g red onion (that's about 1/3 of a red onion) and mince 1 garlic clove.

Mix everything up in the bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Drizzle a generous amount of our Turmeric & Ginger tahini dressing on to.

Garnish with plenty of freshly chopped parsley and enjoy!
