A few days ago, I had shared with you on Instagram, a photo of my back, where I had particularly found of bamboo shoots fresh. I confess that I had never cooked this vegetable and I was very curious to find out. Then, when the organic shop La Vie Claire has suggested me to make a recipe for them with their products, I immediately thought of the quinoa. It’s been so long that I wanted to make a quinoa salad to share with you.

This quinoa salad with bamboo shoots, fresh can be eaten as an input or flat, hot or cold, a bit like a tabbouleh. I love this kind of recipe which can be enjoyed in the evening and then take away the next day at work, in the lunch box.
I also want to put other products that would bring a little oomph, like grapefruit, and flowers of mustard fresh, also dégotées the market… I agree, the result is quite surprising, but well-balanced !
