Ingredients:

2 teaspoons sweet paprika
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground corianderCarrot
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
4 large carrots, thinly sliced lengthwise
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
7 tablespoons SOOC Harissa extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup walnuts
1 cup red quinoa
2 cups water
3 tablespoons SOOC Honey Ginger balsamic vinegar
5 ounces mixed salad greens
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard (optional)
1/2 cup dried cranberries 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 400°. In a small bowl, mix the spices together. In a medium bowl, toss the carrots, onion and 2 tablespoons of the Harissa olive oil. Add 1 tablespoon of the spice mix (saving remaining spice mix for Quinoa) and toss to coat. Spread the vegetables on a rimmed baking sheet and roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until tender.

2. Meanwhile, spread the walnuts in a pie plate and bake for about 7 minutes, until golden. Let cool, then coarsely chop.

3. In a medium saucepan, combine the quinoa with 2 teaspoons of the spice mix and the water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat until the water is absorbed and the quinoa is tender, about 17 minutes. Uncover, fluff with a fork and let cool slightly.

4. In a large bowl, whisk the remaining Harissa olive oil with 3 tablespoons of the Honey Ginger balsamic vinegar, adding remaining spice mix (if any). Salt and pepper to taste, or add one teaspoon of Dijon Mustard, if desired. Add the salad greens, Quinoa, roasted vegetables, cranberries, walnuts, and toss to coat. Finish with Parsley. If presentation is a must, toss the greens with half of the dressing first, and spoon Quinoa mix on top of greens with remaining dressing.
