  • Add water, quinoa, and salt to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.
  • Place the quinoa in a large bowl and add the cabbage, edamame, red pepper, carrots, and cucumber. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, green onions, cilantro, sesame seeds, ginger, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour the dressing over the quinoa salad and stir to combine.
  • Note-Make sure you use tamari for a gluten-free salad, not all soy sauce is gluten-free. This salad is good served at room temperature or chilled.

    Delicious! Served to us in our monthly Diabetes Group meeting with a half sandwich (lettuce, spinach, tomato, turkey, and a little mayo) and a fruit portion. This salad was so flavorful that I wanted to keep eating more. Note 1: You can also use the sesame dressing they sell at COSTCO. Note 2: we made the quinoa in a rice cooker. I plan on making this for our next office party. MAHALO : )
