It is best to rinse and then soak the quinoa in 2 cups of water for at least 6 hours ahead of time. Quinoa will sprout “little tails”. Rinse again and cover with water and bring to a boil. Once boiling in a medium saucepan add the chopped cauliflower, reduce the heat to low, stir and cover and let steam for 15 to 20 minutes.
Reduce heat and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes until liquid is absorbed. Fold in the sunflower seeds, mint, lemon juice, and olive oil.
