Cooked quinoa (look for it with rice and other grains at your market), which has been a South American staple for thousands of years, has a nutty, earthy flavor, takes only about 15 minutes to prepare, and is one of the best sources of plant protein there is. Here, this supergrain is blended with sautéed shallot and shiitake mushrooms, sweet raisins and some of our Sweet and Sour Ginger Dressing to create a savory topping for our DOLE Very Veggie salad. Serve this nutritionally complete dish with some warmed whole-grain rolls.
