Quinoa and Edamame Salad with Honey and Ginger Dressing Recipe
One of the most popular superfoods, quinoa is loaded with fibre, protein and minerals and is also gluten free*. For this recipe, if you combine it with the dressing and edamame beans you'll end up with a very healthy and tasty salad.
Preparation time: 15 minutes || Cooking time: 4 minutes
- Quinoa: 150gm
- Carrot: 1
- Spring onions: 1 bunch
- Sweetcorn: 4 tablespoons (from a can)
- Edamame beans: 100gm - cooked
- Salt and pepper to taste
For the dressing:
- Rice wine vinegar: 2 tablespoons
- Olive oil: 4 tablespoons
- Honey: 1 teaspoon
- Fresh ginger: half a teaspoon
First, grate the carrot, slice the spring onions and grate the fresh ginger for the dressing.
Place the quinoa into a saucepan with 300ml of water and bring to boil. Once boiling, stir and remove from heat, cover and set aside. The water will be absorbed by the quinoa as it 'cooks'.
Place the cooked quinoa in a bowl with the carrot, spring onions, sweetcorn and edamame. Combine the dressing ingredients and add to the salad, mix well and serve.
