Recipe from The Quinoa Habit.


1 1/2 - 2 cups quinoa, cooked
1 cup sweet corn
1 cup peas, or snap peas
1 carrot, grated
1 handful baby kale
1/4 cup cilantro
2 scallions, diced
1 tablespoon sesame seeds (opt.)


3 tablespoons sesame oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon ginger, grated
1 glove garlic, minced


1) Whisk together ingredients for dressing and set aside.

2) Cook quinoa according to instructions. Generally, this involves two cups of water per cup of uncooked quinoa. Bring water to a simmer and add quinoa. Turn heat down to medium-low and simmer, covered, for 18-20 minutes until water is absorbed. Remove from heat and let steam for 10 minutes. Fluff quinoa with a fork.

3) Meanwhile, prep all the veggies for the salad and toss them in a large bowl.

4) Pour dressing over veggies and stir to combine. Add quinoa very last and toss to combine. Serve warm or chill for later.
