Quinoa & Wild Rice Salad With Edamame

in Foodies Bee Hive13 days ago

I’ll be transparent in saying that this recipe is a straight up forgery. My wonderful mother bought me a prepared quinoa salad for lunch at the grocery store a few weeks back, and I couldn’t get enough. I quickly got to trying to replicate the flavours, but likely with less oil and salt than the store-made stuff.


Quinoa & Wild Rice Salad With Edamame

Ingredients (4-6 servings)

1 c. wild or brown rice, cooked according to directions
1 c. quinoa, cooked according to directions
3/4 c. frozen shelled edamame beans, thawed
1 carrot, julienned or grated
1 c. cabbage, thinly sliced
2 tbsp mint, chopped
1/4 c. raw almonds, finely chopped

For the dressing:
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp rice vinegar
3 tbsp. lime juice
2 tbsp. maple syrup
optional: 1/2 tsp. green curry paste



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Chop almonds roughly and roast for 10 minutes.

Prepare the grains and run edamame under warm water to thaw.

Prepare veggies and place in a mixing bowl with grains, edamame, herbs, and almonds.

Prepare dressing by whisking ingredients together and pour over salad.

Mix well to combine. Refrigerate and serve cold.


Sounds delicious to me! Nothing wrong with making a recipe your own, especially when you make it that much healthier with using your own proportions. I have a co-worker wanting me to do the same thing with a frozen meal from Trader Joe's he really enjoys. I just have to give the original a try then I'll try to do my own version at home for him to replicate, too. :) I'll have to share this with him because I think he'd like this one.
