Curried Citrus Quinoa with Raisins and Almonds

All Recipes

1/2 cup quinoa, uncooked
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1/2 cup filtered water
1/4 medium orange, juiced
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp raw, local honey
1/2 tbsp curry powder
1 tbsp minced red onion
1/4 cup raisins
sea salt, to taste
1/4 cup almonds, toasted

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 10 to 15 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.

2-3 Servings
