Keen on Quinoa

This is the type of recipe that makes you question why you would ever eat anything else. The ingredients are as vibrant as they are hearty, complex as they are accessible, a textural combination that rivals dish 10x its cost. Allow us to unpack the glory of Quinoa with Walnuts, Radishes, and Spring Onions.

The bowl packs a punch with a protein powerhouse of quinoa, edamame, and walnuts. Do not hesitate to sub in your personal favorite nut--almonds, in particular, would be divine. And for the flavor, we’ve got the zing of the red onion, scallion, radish, and lemon. The result is a delicate balance between a nutty heartiness and bright flavor.

Don't minimize the importance of actually rinsing your quinoa. Trust us, don’t skip the rinse! You’ll get a crunchier texture and a smoother taste.

For the edamame, make sure you buy them shelled or set aside time to remove them from the pods yourself. Of course, only use the crushed red pepper if you are a fan of spice, and feel free to add more if you’re looking for a solid kick.

Toss and Taste

The best part of this recipe is that the prep is simple, and to finish it off, you are simply mixing and tossing the colorful ingredients. Don’t be shy about tasting your masterpiece as you go to make sure it’s tracking to your liking.

At the end of it all, you’ll have a wonderful dish packed full of vitamins and free of any animal products. This is clean energy at it’s finest. We guarantee your body will thank you!
