QUINOA SALAD WITH ASPARAGUS, GOAT CHEESE AND BLACK OLIVES



Quinoa Salad with Asparagus, Goat Cheese and Black Olives image

Provided by Bobby Flay

Time 55m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 15

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon mustard
1/2 cup olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 cups salted water or vegetable stock
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
2 cups quinoa
16 spears asparagus, trimmed
Olive oil, for brushing
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup pitted nicoise olives
4 ounces aged goat cheese, shaved
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves

Steps:

  • For the vinaigrette: Combine the vinegar, honey and mustard in a blender and blend until smooth. With the motor running, slowly add the olive oil and blend until emulsified. Add salt and pepper to taste and pulse a few times to incorporate.
  • For the quinoa salad: Bring the salted water or vegetable stock to a boil and add the thyme. Stir in the quinoa, bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer until cooked through, about 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  • Preheat the grill. Brush the asparagus with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill on all sides until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove from the grill and cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • Transfer the quinoa to a large bowl, fold in the asparagus, olives, goat cheese, basil and parsley. Add just enough vinaigrette to moisten the salad; don't make it too wet. Transfer to a platter and drizzle with more of the vinaigrette.

QUINOA AND ASPARAGUS SALAD



Quinoa and Asparagus Salad image

I had been cooking quinoa sort of like pasta, in 3 parts water, then draining it and letting it dry in a towel-covered pan. This is a good way to obtain very fluffy grains, but sometimes my quinoa is soggy when I cook it this way, even after it rests under the towel. So, I decided to change the grain-to-water ratio and followed the directions on my Alter Eco quinoa packages (Alter Eco imports red, rainbow and pearl quinoas). I cooked the pearl and the red quinoas in 1 1/2 parts water and the rainbow in 2 parts water. The black quinoa in the rainbow mix takes a little longer to soften and requires a little more liquid. The grains were tighter and less moist than quinoa cooked in abundant water, and the yield was not as great because the grains don't swell as much. But I liked the results, especially for salads like this one. For this salad, I cook 1 cup of quinoa in 1 1/2 cups water to get a slightly tighter, drier grain. The dressing is a lemony buttermilk dressing.

Time 40m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 16

1 cup quinoa
1 1/2 cups water
Salt to taste
1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed
6 radishes, sliced
2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
3 tablespoons finely chopped chives
2 teaspoons finely chopped tarragon
1 ounce feta cheese, crumbled (about 1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 small garlic clove, puréed
Salt to taste
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
5 tablespoons buttermilk
Freshly ground pepper
Lemon-scented olive oil for drizzling (optional)

Steps:

  • Place the quinoa in a strainer and rinse several times with cold water. Place in a medium saucepan with 1 1/2 cups water and salt to taste. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer 15 minutes, until the grains display a threadlike spiral and the water is absorbed. Remove from the heat, remove the lid and place a dish towel over the pan, then return the lid to the pan and let sit for 10 minutes or longer undisturbed. Transfer to a salad bowl and fluff with forks.
  • Steam the asparagus for 3 to 4 minutes, until just tender. Rinse with cold water, pat dry and cut on the diagonal into 1-inch pieces. Add to the quinoa, along with the radishes, pine nuts, chives and tarragon.
  • Whisk together the lemon juice, garlic, salt, olive oil, buttermilk and pepper. Shortly before serving, toss with the quinoa and asparagus mixture. Sprinkle the feta over the top and serve. If desired, drizzle a teaspoon of the lemon-scented olive oil over each serving.

QUINOA, ASPARAGUS, AND FETA SALAD



Quinoa, Asparagus, and Feta Salad image

A perfect spring, summer, or anytime salad. Loaded with protein and fiber, but so delicious you would never guess how healthy it is! If you are making the salad ahead of time, add the dressing just before serving to keep the asparagus an attractive bright green. Leftovers keep well for a couple of days.

ASPARAGUS QUINOA SALAD



Asparagus Quinoa Salad image

Categories     Salad     Lunch     Quinoa     Asparagus     Boil

Yield serves 4 to 6

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
Salt
12 spears asparagus
1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives
1 large tomato
1 lemon
1 tablespoon olive oil
Pepper
4 ounces crumbled feta cheese

Steps:

  • Put the quinoa in a strainer and rinse it for a minute or two under running water. Put the water and a pinch of salt in a medium saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil. Stir in the quinoa, lower the heat to medium-low, cover, and cook over medium-low heat for 20 minutes, or until soft. (When it's done, the quinoa seeds will have little wisps spiraling off of them-this is the germ separating from the seed.) Drain the quinoa in a strainer.
  • While the quinoa is cooking, break off and discard the tough ends of the asparagus and cut the asparagus into 1-inch pieces. Place in a saucepan, add about 1/2 inch of water, and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until barely tender. (Alternatively, if you have a microwave, place the asparagus in a microwave-safe bowl. Add a few tablespoons of water, cover with plastic wrap or wax paper, and microwave on high heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until barely tender.) Drain the asparagus and place it under cold running water for 1 minute to cool it down.
  • Cut the kalamata olives into thin slices. Cut the tomato in half, scrape the seeds out of the tomato with a small tool or your finger, and chop into 1/2-inch pieces. Finely grate 1 teaspoon of the lemon peel. Be careful to only grate the yellow part; the white pith underneath is bitter. Squeeze 3 tablespoons of juice from the lemon.
  • Place the quinoa in a bowl with the asparagus, kalamata olives, tomato, and lemon zest and stir until combined. Whisk together the lemon juice and olive oil and pour over the quinoa mixture. Stir well and season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with the feta cheese.
  • bargain shopper
  • Grains such as quinoa, bulgur wheat, and rice are available prepackaged in most grocery stores. But you can save a substantial amount of money by purchasing them from the bulk food section at a natural food store. For that matter, many supermarkets now have bulk food sections, too.

  • Peel the eggplant completely or peel the eggplant leaving a few strips of skin showing, like you would with a cucumber. The skin can be bitter and tough, so I like to remove most of it. Chop it into bite size pieces. If you have time, sprinkle the eggplant with kosher salt and place on paper towels or in a colander. Let rest for 15-25 minutes until you see small drops of moisture on the eggplant. This helps remove some bitterness from the eggplant. You could also buy baby eggplant, which are naturally less bitter and skip this step.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Toss the eggplant with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread out on a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes, shaking the pan once or twice during cooking.
