Quinoa Root Vegetables Salad with Curry Vinaigrette


http://schneiderchen.de | © 2014 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




This simple, yet rewarding protein-rich quinoa recipe with ginger-curry vinaigrette, which tastes even better the next day, is a great way to use up any winter vegetables you have in the fridge. It's wonderful as a salad and a side dish with some oven roasted chicken, or as a vegetarian main.
Parsley root, aka Hamburg parsley, rooted parsley, looks deceptively similar to a parsnip, but is less pungent than parsnip and has a faint parsley taste. It has a sweet taste, and is often used in soups, stews, and side dishes in Germany.

SaladGinger Curry Vinaigrette
  • 100 g Quinoa, rinsed, drained
  • 200 ml Water
  • 300 g Root parsley, peeled, cut into inch-cubes
  • 350 g Carrots, peeled, cut into inch-cubes
  • A handful of arugula, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp Coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin powder
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt and freshly ground black peppercorns
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • 1 tbsp Madras curry powder
  • 1-inch piece Ginger root, peeled and finely grated
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black peppercorns
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, honey, curry powder, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper. Whisking constantly, add the oil in a slow, steady stream, until the mixture is emulsified and well combined. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
  2. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. Place root parsley, carrots, oil and spices in a bowl. Toss to coat. Transfer to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Roast for about 25 minutes until tender.
  3. Meanwhile, place quinoa and water in a saucepan over high heat. Cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
  4. Place quinoa in a salad bowl. Add root vegetables, arugula and the dressing. Toss gently to combine.

I love quinoa as does everyone else in my family. It's one of those grains that you feel great about eating plus you can do some much with it. I like that you created a curry vinaigrette, I've never tried one before. Although my hubby isn't a fan of curry I am so I'll have to make a jar of this for myself. Great recipe. Happy New Year!

That dressing would go well with any grain salad, I assume. Before we go off on our several months language training , I am trying to finish most of the stuff in the pantry and have accumulated lots of bulgur. Will make this salad soon. Never heard of Hamburg parsley. I have to check out the fresh markets when I am in Spain.
