Makes 2-3 main dish servings or around 6 side dish servings

For the Quinoa:
1 cup uncooked quinoa (I used golden & black mix)
1 cup vegetable broth, optional
1 cup shelled frozen edamame
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 to 1.5 mandarin oranges, peeled and chopped
2 large carrots, grated
2 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted if desired (I was too lazy but almonds are usually better toasted!)

For the Dressing:
2 tablespoons fresh mandarin orange juice (squeezed from about half a mandarin)
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon chili garlic sauce (optional for a bit of spice)
1-1/2 teaspoons honey (use agave or brown sugar to make this dish vegan)
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
Dash each of salt and pepper
