  1. Rinse quinoa and put in saucepan with stock. Bring to a boil, then turn heat to low. Cook the quinoa in the stock for about 20-30 minutes or until all the stock is absorbed.
  2. Chop the tomatoes and basil into small pieces.
  3. Once quinoa has finished cooking, spread out on a jelly-roll pan and let cool completely
  4. Mix tomatoes, mozzarella, basil and quinoa
  5. Drizzle olive oil and balsamic over it, add salt to taste.
  6. THAT’S IT! STUPIDLY EASY! ENJOY!
