This recipe combines the two super foods that Dipa wrote about yesterday - quinoa and almonds. I know that you can buy quinoa and sliced almonds at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. You can also click on the link below to see how to slice almonds yourself. I have made this recipe several times and love it.
1 1/2 cup quinoa
2 1/2 cups plus 1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
2 green onions, thinly sliced diagonally
1/4 cup sliced natural almonds, toasted
- In 12-inch skillet, toast quinoa on medium 5 minutes or until fragrant and golden, stirring frequently.
- Stir 2 1/2 cups water and 1/2 teaspoon salt into toasted quinoa; heat to boiling on high. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15 to 17 minutes or until all water is absorbed.
- Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together soy sauce, rice vinegar, oil, ginger, green onions, and remaining 1 tablespoon water.
- Transfer quinoa to large serving bowl. Stir in soy sauce mixture until quinoa is evenly coated. Sprinkle with toasted almonds to serve.
