Ingredients

  • 8 large red radishes or 1 large watermelon radish
  • 1 small black radish
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled
  • 1 medium fennel bulb, cored
  • 1 cup quinoa, preferably red rinsed
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • Finely grated zest of 2 lemons
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Preparation

  1. Using a mandoline, thinly slice the radishes, carrot and fennel bulb. Transfer to a large bowl of ice water and refrigerate for about 1 hour, until crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring the quinoa and water to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender, 20 minutes. Let cool.
  3. Drain and dry the vegetables. In a bowl, combine the lemon zest and juice with the oil. Add the quinoa and toss; season with salt and pepper. Serve the quinoa in bowls, topped with the vegetables.
