Rinse quinoa. Bring water and salt to a boil and add quinoa. Simmer covered for 20 minutes or until grains are fluffy and water is absorbed. Make chimichurri sauce by combining vinegar, water, garlic, chili flakes, salt, pepper, and oil in a blender; pulse until well combined. In a big bowl, gently mix together quinoa, chimichurri sauce and aduki beans. Garnish with a few whole parsley leaves.
