Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups low sodium vegetable broth, or water *
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shelled edamame
  • ½ cup shredded carrots
  • 1 small red pepper, chopped
  • 3 scallions, sliced
  • ¼ cup golden raisins
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ½ lime, juiced

Instructions
 

  • In a medium sauce pan put the quinoa in the vegetable broth with the salt. Allow the mixture to come to a boil. Turn the burner to simmer and cover. The quinoa should be cooked in about 15 minutes.
  • Combine the cooked quinoa with the edamame, carrots, red peppers, scallions and raisins.
  • Whisk together the sesame oil, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, honey and lime to make the dressing.

Notes

* If you don't have broth, you can cook the quinoa in water. The broth brings more flavor to the dish.
