Oriental Quinoa Salad with Kale

When I was walking through the organic market the other day I found some fresh kale. I was so excited to get some of my favorite veggies.
To make the salad a full meal I decided to add some quinoa and carrots. You can easily take it to work. Kale is very mild that's why you can enjoy it in smoothies or salads. If you can't find any kale you can replace it with chard or kohlrabi green.

Makes 4 salad portions.

1/2 cup (100 g) quinoa
1 cup vegetable broth
a bunch of kale
1/4 cup peanuts
1 carrot

Cook quinoa with closed lid for about 15 minutes. Put it aside and let it soak. Wash kale under water and pour it off. Pull of the leafs and stew them with 2 tbsp. of water a few minutes. Shred the carrot. Mix quinoa, kale, carrots and peanuts.

For the dressing:
2 tbsp. penut butter
1 tbsp. lemon juice
salt, pepper
1 tsp. yeast flakes
1 garlic clove
a small piece of ginger
1 tsp. agave syrup
1/4 cup water
1 pinch of cumin
1 pinch of cilantro

For the dressing mix peanut butter, lemon juice, some pepper and salt, 1 tsp. yeast flakes, garlic clove, a small piece of ginger and agave syrup. Put some water to it and blend it until it's smooth. Add cumin and cilantro.
Add dressing to the salad and enjoy!
