2 cups Quinoa
4 cups Campbell's® No Salt Added Ready To Use Vegetable Broth
1.5 cups Red Cabbage Shredded
1 cup Carrot julienned (matchsticks)
0.5 cup Cilantro
4.5 leaves Thai basil minced
0.50 cup Green Onions
0.50 cup unsalted peanuts roasted and chopped
5 lime wedges for garnish


2 Lime Juice
0.25 cup all natural peanut butter
3 tbsp tamari
2 tbsp Honey
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
1 tsp Olive Oil
Water to thin


  1. Place 2 cups of quinoa and 4 cups of Campbell's broth in a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until all the liquid is absorbed; about 15 minutes. Set aside and let cool for 10 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine shredded cabbage, matchstick carrots, cilantro, basil, and green onions. Set aside. In a blender, combine ingredients for dressing and mix until creamy. Add water to thin, if necessary.
  3. To assemble, mix half of the dressing with the quinoa in a serving bowl. Add prepared vegetables and herbs, stirring gently to combine. Taste test and add more dressing if needed or desired. Garnish with roasted peanuts, extra cilantro, and a few lime wedges.

Recipe notes

  1. Pairs well with Thai Beef Salad
  2. Chiffonade is a technique used for cutting herbs and leafy vegetables into thin ribbon strips. To chiffonade basil, for instance, stack leaves and roll them into a tube and carefully cut perpendicular to produce fine strips.
  3. Julienne is a technique similar to chiffonade, used with sturdier vegetables like carrots, that involves cutting a vegetable into thin strips or small, matchlike pieces.
  4. A bias cut means to slice not straight across, but at a diagonal (45-degrees). The cut creates elongated, oval shaped pieces for presentation and enjoyment.
  5. PLANNING TO COOK GLUTEN-FREE? Before preparing a recipe always read product labels to ensure each ingredient is gluten-free. Products and ingredients can change.
