Curried Quinoa with Chickpeas and Apples

This is my latest favorite quinoa dish. It keeps for 4-5 days in the fridge, so I like to make it one evening and then eat it for lunch for a few days. It's good plain, atop a salad and put into collard leaf wraps.

Curried Quinoa Salad with Chickpeas snd Apples

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp cumin

Bring all ingredients to a boil and cover, reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.

When cool, toss with:

  • 1 green apple, diced
  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 c diced cilantro
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 1/4 c diced green onions

Mix up and stir in dressing:

  • 3 Tbsp EVOO
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • salt and pepper to taste
