I have been enjoying a variety of quinoa salads this summer. Sometimes kept simple like this Turmeric-Infused Quinoa Salad with Broccoli; or this Radish, Raisins and Cauliflower Quinoa Salad; whereas today - Roasted Cauliflower Quinoa with Nori Seaweed
doing more to the cauliflower instead of blanching them; adding some minty leaves and nori seaweed - bringing in the aroma of spices and herbs to full swing.
Roasted Cauliflower Quinoa with Nori Seaweed
Ingredients: 1 cup quinoa + 1.5 cups water; half head of cauliflower - roast recipe; 4 red radish, cleaned and thinly sliced, leaves finely chopped; 3-4 mint leaves, finely chopped; cilantro, finely chopped; nori seaweed
Directions: Cook the quinoa, fluff it up, then toss in the veggies and herbs.
With quinoa, I don't even need any salad dressing to combine the salad ingredients as one. The quinoa somehow binds everything together - ingredients (vegetables) and flavors, plus a series of textures. Love love love.
Sharing this salad with Souper Sunday. Also sharing with Hearth and Soul.
*Update: Visiting the orthopedist later for my injured right elbow. Hope there is no need for surgery. Thanks for your emails, and concern. I'm heavily dependent on my left hand right now! One-hand typing and need to think about one-hand cooking soon :(
