If cooking quinoa from scratch, bring 1 ⅓ cup water to a boil, add ⅔ cup dry quinoa, cover, reduce to a simmer, and cook 15 minutes. Quinoa is when it is fluffy and all of the water has been absorbed and cooked off. Let quinoa cool. While quinoa is cooking you can chop your basil, turnip greens, and zest and juice your orange.
Whisk together dressing ingredients (orange juice and zest, olive oil, and basil) in a small bowl.
In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, turnip greens, and chickpeas. Add the dressing and toss to combine.
Can be served immediately or made up to 24 hours in advance.
