Ingredients

Quinoa

  • 1 cup quinoa rinsed
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Banana Bread

  • 1/2 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut butter
  • 2 very ripe bananas peeled
  • 1 egg beated
  • 1/2 tablespoon soy milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Olive Oil to brush on
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Thai Cabbage

  • 1/4 head red cabbage thinly sliced
  • 1/4 head green cabbage thinly sliced
  • 2 red bell peppers, julienned
  • 1 carrot grated
  • 1 cucumber 1/4 inch dice
  • 1/4 cup salted, roasted peanuts

Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon each: honey, lemon juice, tamari, water
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha

Instructions

  • For quinoa: In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine quinoa and water. Bring to a boil; then reduce heat to low-medium, and simmer. Cook uncovered until all water is absorbed, 20 minutes. 
  • Remove pot from heat. Cover, and let it steam for 5 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 325°. Melt coconut butter in a small saucepan. In a medium-sized bowl, mash bananas with a fork until smooth; add egg, coconut butter and soy milk, and stir until mixture is uniformly colored. Add quinoa; mix well.
  • Combine remaining dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add to banana mixture, and mix well.
  • Pour batter in a well-oiled or greased 9x5-inch loaf pan. Bake 60–65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pan, 10 minutes. Increase oven to 350°. Once banana bread is cooled, put in freezer for 10 minutes.
  • After banana bread hardens, dice into ¼-inch pieces. Place on a sheet tray, and spread small amount of olive oil on bread; season with salt and pepper. Bake 5–10 minutes, until crispy.
  • In a large bowl, combine all salad vegetables and peanuts. Mix all dressing ingredients together. Add croutons on salad, and mix. Lastly, add dressing.
