This week has involved a lot of prep work to Thankscooking, therefore I have become even more lazy at lunch. This is my favorite go-to quick lunch, when I am busy, and on-the-go, and urban, and working, and…. ok it’s mostly for when I don’t feel like cooking and it goes well with Sports Center.
Health benefits of quinoa aside, this salad is bomb just for its sweet/earthy balance. The carrots and cranberries balance out the quinoa. It’s delish, and it will keep for about a week in the fridge.
All you do is mix these guys together (duh):
2 cups cooked quinoa
1/2 cup steamed edamame, shelled
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup shredded carrots (I usually use a vegetable peeler to get really thin slices)
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Of course, adjust the measurements as you see fit. Easy peasy!
