Instructions

Serves 2, Prep and Cook Time: 25 minutes

Before cooking, bring a pot with water (1 1/2 cups) and salt (1/2 teaspoon) to a boil.

1. Dice shallot and carrots into small pieces.

2. Once water is boiling, add quinoa and reduce heat to medium. Simmer for 12 minutes until liquid is absorbed. 

3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan on medium. Add shallot and carrots plus a pinch of salt. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

4. Meanwhile, add arugula (or greens of choice) to a bowl. Combine with juice from half the lemon, plus oil & salt (both to your liking). Mix well.

5. Once quinoa has absorbed the liquid, remove from heat.

6. Add quinoa to the pan with the shallot and carrots. Turn off heat. Add almonds, cranberries, 3/4 of the goat cheese, and a pinch of salt. Stir. 

7. Transfer arugula to plate and top with quinoa mixture and a squeeze of lemon juice. Ganish with remaining goat cheese. Enjoy!
