QUINOA and CARROT SALAD



The get healthy go vegan cookbook by neal barnard

1 cup quinoa
1 small bag julienned carrots
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 clove garlic minced
¾ teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground cumin
3 pinches of cayenne pepper
Salt to taste
Ground black pepper
½ cup Thompson raisins

I added a can of chickpeas as well.

Bring two cups of water to a boil pour in quinoa and return to boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes

Oh ha ha; the recipe says to cook the carrots for two minutes in boiling water. Too much work, I just dumped them in raw.

In a large bowl whisk the lemon juice, syrup, garlic, cinnamon, cumin, cayenne, salt and pepper. Add carrots quinoa and raisin, toss. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
