  • 1/2 cup pitted black olives
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Rinse the quinoa under cold water to remove any residue or bitterness. Then, place it in a saucepan with 2 cups of water and a pinch of salt. Bring the saucepan to a boil, then reduce the heat and let the quinoa simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until tender and the grains have opened up. Remove from heat and let it cool.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare your braai grill and make sure you have hot charcoal ready for cooking.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the zucchini, bell peppers, onion, cherry tomatoes, and black olives. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste. Mix well to combine all the flavors.
  4. Once the quinoa is cool, add it to the bowl with the vegetables. Gently toss to combine all the ingredients.
  5. Place the quinoa and vegetable mixture on a hot grill and cook for about 5-7 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and slightly charred, stirring occasionally.
  6. Remove the braai quinoa salad from the grill and let it cool for a few minutes. Then, garnish with fresh mint leaves.

Your braai quinoa salad is ready to enjoy! Serve it as a main dish or as a side for your braai gatherings. Enjoy!
