Quinoa and Vegetables with Lime and Almond Butter Dressing

I got this recipe from Stuff About Stuff blog, thanks Sarah! The sauce was so yummy. It's a very easy meal that's so versatile depending on what you have in the house. This made around 3 meals.

Quinoa with Vegetables

Veggies of your choice (I used spring onion, red capsicum, english spinach, carrots & can of balck beans)
750ml Liquid vegetable stock or water with stock cube
1 tbls Sesame oil
Cashews, handful
Pepita and sunflower seeds, handful
1 cup Quinoa
1 Tbls oil for frying


Rinse the quinoa well
Bring stock to boil and add quinoa, turning down to medium and stiring until absorbed all the liquid.
When quinoa is cooked it has little shoots, so you may need to add more water/stock if not cooked.
I added the carrot to the quinoa mixture to cook.
Meanwhile make the dressing (recipe below).
Heat a frying pan with some oil on a medium-high heat and sauté the vegetables.
I added the spring onion and cashews first then the others afterwards.
Once quinoa is cooked in a large bowl mix together the vegetables and quinoa and toss through dressing and seaseme oil.

Lime and almond butter dressing


Juice from 1 fresh lime
1/4 cup Almond butter
1 Tbls Sesame oil
1-2 Tbls  Maple syrup


Whisk all ingredients together.
