Quinoa (pronounced KEY-nwa) is a sassy grain containing the highest protein and most amino acids of any other grain. With a subtle nutty flavor and light texture this grain can be used in pilafs, salads and stuffings.
Soak the quinoa 1/2 hour in cold water.
Rinse in water several times through a large fine mesh strainer.
In a saucepan, sautee quinoa in canola oil (or olive oil) for 2 minutes while stirring.
Add 2 cups vegetable broth, cover with lid and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow to sit five minutes with lid on.
Fluff gently with a fork and set aside to cool.
Steam the carrots for 5 minutes and prepare edamame according to package directions–rinse in cold water.
Add mint, ginger and cucumber.
Whisk together dressing ingredients.
Gently combine veggies, sunflower seeds, quinoa and dressing in a large bowl.
Cover and chill.
