Recipe: 5-Ingredient Quinoa Salad with Edamame and Carrots

Rank: Easy

Time execution: 50 min

Can be served for: 8 persons


  • 3/4 cup dry quinoa

  • 2 2/4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth

  • 2 cup frozen shelled edamame

  • 2 tablespoon dark sesame oil

  • 2/3 cup shredded carrots


  1. Put the quinoa in a medium pot and cover with cold water; let soak 5 minutes. Drain thoroughly through a fine-mesh strainer and put it back in the pot.

  2. Add the broth to the quinoa and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 23 minutes. Sprinkle in the edamame in an even layer and add a pinch of salt. Cover and continue to cook, 4 more minutes. Remove from the heat without disturbing the lid, and allow it to rest for 5 minutes. Transfer the quinoa to a large plate and scatter the edamame on top; drizzle with the oil. Spread in an even layer with a wooden spoon, drawing lines in it to cool it quickly.

  3. Transfer the cooled quinoa to a large bowl and add the carrots. Season with 2/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Serve warm or chill at least 3 hours, or until ready to serve.
