The Almond Butter Lime Dressing is definitely the star of the show with this recipe. So much flavor!


  • 1 ½ cups of quinoa

  • 3 cups of water

  • Pinch of salt

  • ½ head of red cabbage

  • 1 large cucumber

  • 1 large bell peppers

  • 1 bunch of green onions

  • Fresh Cilantro

Almond-Butter Lime Dressing:

  • ⅓ cup of almond butter

  • 3 tablespoons of lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon of soy sauce

  • 3 tablespoons of water

  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 ½  teaspoons of grated fresh ginger


Rinse quinoa. Combine the rinsed quinoa and water in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, then decrease the heat a bit to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook until the quinoa has absorbed all of the water, about 10 to 20 minutes. Chop veggies. Add dressing ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Assemble bowls by scooping quinoa into a bowl and topping with veggies, Almond Butter Lime Dressing, sesame seeds, and cilantro.
