Quinoa Detox Salad

 
This potato quinoa salad is a great way to detox your body without feeling deprived. Purple potatoes and quinoa not only fill you up, but are also full of important nutrients like fiber. Hemp hearts and almonds are packed with protein and add a nice texture to this salad. The tasty flavors in this salad come from orange, honey, parsley and coconut oil, which are all powerful detoxifying ingredients that will leave you feeling refreshed.
 
Serves 4
 
8 oz. purple potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup quinoa
2 scallions, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil or coconut oil

Sea salt and pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley
