Lemony Quinoa Salad with Shaved Vegetables

  • ACTIVE: 25 MIN

The Good News Eating quinoa is a great way for vegetarians to get protein. Jeremy Fox tosses nutty-tasting quinoa with crunchy shaved vegetables for a refreshing salad loaded with vitamins and minerals.

  1. 8 large red radishes or 1 large watermelon radish
  2. 1 small black radish
  3. 1 medium carrot, peeled
  4. 1 medium fennel bulb, cored
  5. 1 cup quinoa, preferably red, rinsed
  6. 2 1/2 cups water
  7. Finely grated zest of 2 lemons
  8. Juice of 1 lemon
  9. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  10. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. Using a mandoline, thinly slice the radishes, carrot and fennel bulb. Transfer to a large bowl of ice water and refrigerate for about 1 hour, until crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring the quinoa and water to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender, 20 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Drain and dry the vegetables. In a bowl, combine the lemon zest and juice with the oil. Add the quinoa and toss; season with salt and pepper. Serve the quinoa in bowls, topped with the vegetables.
