Warm Quinoa and Asparagus Salad
Contributed by: Kyle Trent
  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cups water or broth
  • 1 leek
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 cup diced strawberries
  • 1 cup peas
  • 1 cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • 3 TBS lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 TBS organic maple syrup
  • Fresh pepper and sea salt, to taste
Rinse quinoa. Add 1 1/2 cups water or broth to quinoa in medium pot and bring to a low boil. Reduce heat and cover. Cook for 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff and let stand for 5 minutes.
Slice leek into rounds. Sauté leek and garlic for 5 minutes. Season to taste. Break off rough bottom ends of asparagus and discard. Slice remaining asparagus into 1-inch pieces. Add asparagus in with leek and cook until tender but crisp. Stir in strawberries, peas and parsley. Heat for a few minutes, then remove from heat.
Combine lemon juice, olive oil, maple syrup and salt to make dressing. Add to skillet mixture and cooked quinoa. Season to taste.
