Recipe of the week - Curried Quinoa Salad
½ cup Lemon juice
¼ cup of Canola oil (or a flavorless oil)
1 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp curry powder
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp brown sugar
Heat the dressing for one minute in the microwave to release the flavor of the spices
2 Cups Quinoa cooked
1/3 Cup Sliced almonds
1/3 Cup Craisins
2-3 Roasted yams (cut in cubes and roasted on a cookie tray in the oven, coat lightly in olive oil/salt/pepper
2 Apples sliced in small pieces
1-2 breasts of chicken poached in boiling water until just cooked. Pull apart with a fork and add to the salad.
Mix everything together and serve!!!
Can be served with fresh spinach and goat cheese, I sometimes serve it with low fat plain yogurt that I add a seasoning mix to the yogurt (like uncle dan’s ranch seasoning that has 0 calories)
