2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the quinoa

  • Rinse the quinoa.
In a small sauce pot, combine the quinoa and 1 cup [2 cups] lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, fluff with a fork, and stir in the cabbage.
While the quinoa cooks, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep and cook the chickpeas

  • Rinse the chickpeas and pat dry.
In a medium frying pan over high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chickpeas, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly crisped, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and season to taste with salt.
While the chickpeas cook, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the apple and beets

  • Peel the apple, if desired. Cut the apple into quarters lengthwise and cut away the core. Thinly slice the fruit.
  • Cut a small corner from the beet packaging and drain off any excess liquid; cut the beets into 1-inch pieces.


Transfer the quinoa and cabbage to individual bowls and arrange the chickpeas, apple, and beets on top. Spoon over as much tahini goddess dressing as you like and serve any remaining dressing on the side.
