Sesame quinoa salad

Ingredients: Salad
2 cups quinoa 2 ¾ cups water 1 lb green beans, stems removed and beans cut into 1-inch lengths 3 cups grated carrots 1 red pepper, diced ½ cup toasted sesame seeds

Sesame-ginger dressing: 8 cloves garlic, crushed ¼ cup fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped ¼ cup cider vinegar 1/4 cup tamari 2/3 cup sesame oil 2 tsp salt

Method: Thoroughly rinse the quinoa with warm water and drain in a fine mesh strainer. Combine water and quinoa in a sauce pot, bring to a boil, and turn to low.
