How to make it

  • In sieve, rinse quinoa with cold running water. In 3 - quart saucepan, combine quinoa, 3 cups water, and 1/2 tsp. salt; heat to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 min. or until water is absorbed. Transfer quinoa to large bowl.
  • Meanwhile, place broccoli and 1/4 c. water in microwave-safe medium bowl; cover and cook in microwave oven on High 4 - 5 min. or until tender-crisp. Drain; add to quinoa in bowl.
  • In blender, combine carrot, ginger, vegetable oil, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, remaining 3 TBSP. water, and 1/4 tsp. salt; blend until pureed. Add to quinoa and broccoli and toss to combine. Serve salad warm or at room temperature.
  • * I found that the warm ingredients really absorbed the dressing, so I would suggest mixing up twice the dressing. Pour half on the salad and taste, then add additional dressing to your liking.

    This sounds wonderful. I am always looking for healthy and unusual salads. I haven't tried quinoa yet, but I need to, it's so nutritious.
