Serves To:USMetric
1   carrot, peeled, washed and grated
1/4 Cup(c)  fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 Cup(c)  toasted almonds, slivered
1/2 Cup(c)  mix of dried dates, cherries and raisins, chopped
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  cumin, ground
1 Teaspoon(t)  ginger root, grated
1 Clove(clv)  garlic, grated
1 Teaspoon(t)  turmeric
1 Teaspoon(t)  black pepper or cayenne pepper, ground, to taste
1 Teaspoon(t)  fine sea salt, to taste
2 Tablespoon(T)  fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoon(T)  extra virgin olive oil
1 Cup(c)  uncooked quinoa, rinsed and drained


Fill a medium sized saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add the quinoa and cook, uncovered, over medium high heat for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside, fluffing with a fork every now and then to let the steam escape and prevent further cooking. In a large sized bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, turmeric, garlic, ginger and cumin. Stir in the quinoa and dried fruit. Decorate with the almonds, parsley and carrot.
