Salad

Dressing

Stir grains constantly until they begin to change color and give off a nutty aroma. Bring water to boil in a large pot. Add salt and toasted quinoa to boiling water. Boil for 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat and drain quinoa through a large strainer (in the same way you would prepare pasta).

Prepare dressing and place in a large bowl. Add carrots, seeds, and parsley. Add cooked quinoa and toss well. Serve at room temperature or chilled. Preparation time: 15-20 minutes/ Makes 4 to 6 servings.
