Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place dry quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer and rinse thoroughly to avoid bitterness. Transfer rinsed quinoa to a medium saucepan with a tight fitting lid. Add 1 cup water and bring to a boil over high heat, uncovered. Once boiling, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer back to fine-mesh strainer over a bowl to allow any excess water to drain off of cooked quinoa.

  • Remove broccoli florets from stem and separate into individual florets. Remove outer layer of stems using a vegetable peeler. Run both florets and stem through a food processor to shred.

  • Toast almonds in a large, dry skillet over medium heat stirring constantly until fragrant, 5 minutes. To avoid burning, transfer almonds to a bowl immediately after toasting.

  • Combine quinoa, shredded broccoli, basil and almonds in a large bowl.

  • In a small saucepan add water, cornstarch and vegetable broth. Heat to a boil and then boil for four minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool and thicken.

  • Add all remaining dressing ingredients to a small container with a lid.

  • Add all of the cooled starch mixture to other dressing ingredients, seal lid and shake vigorously to combine.

  • Pour dressing over slaw and toss to combine.

  • Allow to rest for at least 20 minutes before serving to allow flavors to meld.
