Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes
Red Beet Quinoa:
3/4 cup dry Suncore Foods® Rainbow Quinoa Seeds
1 1/2 cups water or vegetable broth
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp Suncore Foods® Red Beet Powder
Lemon Maple Dressing:
Juice from 1 lemon, 1/3 cup
2 tbsp maple syrup, add more or less depending on your desired sweetness
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small red onion, finely chopped
Dash of pepper
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds or chopped nuts of choice
1/4 cup dried cranberries or other fruit
1 cup sliced fresh figs
1/2 cup diced fresh apple
Chopped fresh parsley and mint
1. Wash the quinoa 2-3 times. Place the Suncore Foods® Rainbow Quinoa Seeds, water/broth, salt, and Suncore Foods® Red Beet Powder in a medium saucepan. Cover then mix it well. Leave to simmer over high heat until it comes to a boil, around 8 minutes. Lower the heat then mix the quinoa every 2 to 3 minutes to prevent it from sticking to the pan. Leave to cook until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is fluffy, about 15 to 20 minutes total. Transfer the quinoa to a large bowl then leave it to cool for 25 to 30 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, mix all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl.
3. When the quinoa has cooled down, pour in the dressing along with the seeds/nuts, dried fruit, apple, and herbs. Mix well and enjoy!
