  • 1/3 cup dried (uncooked) quinoa 
  • 1 tbsp of chopped chives
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Balsamic glaze*

Notes & Modifications:
Low-FODMAP: Balsamic vinegar is technically rated as a moderate FODMAP. However it does have a safe low FODMAP serving size of 1 tablespoon per person, which is plenty to make a nice salad dressing with. Just remember that larger serves of balsamic vinegar (two tablespoons) moderate levels of fructose.


To make it Vegan: omit the goats cheese and/or replace with a soft vegan cheese alternative
