 Toasted Quinoa Salad
 3/4 c. uncooked quinoa
 1 c. diced carrots
 1/2 c. chopped red bell pepper
 1/4 c. minced parsley
 2 sliced green onions
 juice of 1 lemon and 1 lime (or 1-2 tbsp. of each)
 1 1/2 tbsp. soy sauce or tamari
 2 cloves minced garlic
 1 tsp. chilli sauce (tobasco)
 Rinse quinoa and drain.  Put in a pot and dry toast until a few grains
 begin to pop.  Add 1 1/2 cups water, bring to a boil, cover and simmer
 for 15 minutes, or until the quinoa has absorbed all the
 liquid. Remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes. Fluff with fork
 and let cool.
 Mix carrot, red pepper, parsley and green onion in large bowl.  Add
 cooled quinoa and toss to combine.  Whisk together lemon and lime
 juices, soy or tamari, garlic and chilli sauce.  Pour over salad and
 combine well.  Chill until serving time.  We also enjoy throughing in
 a few steames, cooled snow peas.  Serves 4 - 6.
