Pink Quinoa-Beetroot Salad (with Crunchy Kale)

See previous posts for Crunchy Kale Recipe. Otherwise, this is really easy: simply boil some quinoa and beetroot together in a pan. If you use pre-cooked beetroot, you can add it at the same time as you start boiling quinoa. If you use raw beetroot, you will need to cook it for 20-30 minutes on its own first (cutting the beetroot up small reduces the cooking time). Meanwhile, slice up some raw yellow peppers and tomatoes. Great dressed with lemon/lime and sprinkled with pumpkin seeds and/or parsley.

It's pink quinoa! What more could you ask for?
