A refreshing and satisfying side dish. Also great for lunches! You may mix red quinoa with regular quinoa for a pretty color variation.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring the quinoa, vegetable broth, and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender, and the water has been absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes.

  • While the quinoa is cooking, prepare the dressing by whisking together the orange juice, lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, honey, and curry powder in a mixing bowl. Stir in the cooked quinoa, red onion, and raisins; season to taste with sea salt. Cover, and chill in the refrigerator several hours until cold.

  • Stir in half of the toasted almonds immediately before serving. Sprinkle the remaining almonds over top to serve.

This is really good! I loved the curry flavor...it reminds me of the curry chicken salad I used to eat in Belgium. I made this recipe as is except I did add some fresh cracked pepper. Thanks for a new way to eat quinoa! Read More

This was good. I did use reduced sodium chicken broth instead of vegetable. Really didn't get the citrus flavor that much at all mostly curry. I really like curry but that is really the only flavor you taste. Would probably make it again using some orange zest in there as well and perhaps chopped carrots or celery or some kind of crunch.

This was quite good. Had a wonderful flavor to it that made for a light and refreshing lunch. It makes a whole lot though- next time I will only make a half batch as I couldn't finish it in a week. But I will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This was delicious! I made for a picnic lunch side dish and it travelled beautifully. I only added the almonds upon serving (packed them seperately) to preserve the crunch. Loved it! Read More

This quinoa dish is wonderful and quick and easy to make. I cooked the quinoa in water and toasted my curry pwd. before adding. I didn't really get a lot of the citrus flavor as I think I added too much red onion. I love red onion though so it wasn't a negative for me. Will make this a lot! Read More

Yummy!!! I didn't use all the sauce- it was a bit much for me and I added an extra dash of curry at the end (just to suit my taste). Amazingly yummy! Read More
