INGREDIENTS

Salad Base

  • 1 cup quinoa, uncooked (I used tricolor quinoa)
  • 2 cups water (or vegetable broth for extra flavor)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth (or 1 tablespoon coconut oil, if you cook with oil)
  • 1/3 of an onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup edamame, frozen
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • 2 cups kale, de-stemmed
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Tahini Lemon Dressing

  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (approx. 1 lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or agave nectar)
  • sea salt, to taste
DIRECTIONS
  1. For the salad base, add the quinoa and water to a medium sized pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, reduce heat to simmer and leave covered for 15 minutes or until the water is completely absorbed.
  3. In a separate pan, heat the vegetable broth and sauté the onions with the garlic for approximately 2 minutes. Add the frozen edamame and zucchini and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the kale last and cook about 1 minute until softened. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and then turn off heat.
  4. For the dressing, add all of the ingredients to a small bowl and whisk until smooth.
  5. Scoop the quinoa into a bowl, top with the vegetable mixture and drizzle on the dressing.
  6. Enjoy!
