KAMUT® AVOCADO AND SPICY CARROT SALAD

A simple, yet flavorful vegetarian/vegan salad. A delightful sweet, spicy and creamy mix of fresh cool avocado, chipotle roasted carrots and a lightly honey-sweetened dressing.

Salad:

1 cup              KAMUT® berries

4-5                  large carrots

1 Tbs              extra virgin olive oil

1/2-1Tbs        chipotle powder

1                      avocado

1/4 cup           sunflower seeds

1 Tbs              freshly chopped cilantro for topping

Salt and pepper to taste

Dressing:

1 Tbs              fresh squeezed lime juice

1 Tbs              extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbs              honey

Soak the KAMUT® berries overnight in 3 cups of water, drain, put into a saucepan and cover with water (at least 2” higher than the KAMUT®) bring to a boil, reduce to a low heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes. The KAMUT® should be tender but still slightly chewy. Drain and cool.

Preheat the over to 375 degrees. Peel the carrots and cut into ½” slices. Toss with a tablespoon of olive oil and ½ teaspoon of chipotle powder (for more heat add more). Put into a shallow roasting pan and roast until carrots are tender, but still have a slight crunch—about 25-30 minutes. Allow to cool. Remove avocado from skin and dice into ½” pieces.

Toss together the KAMUT®, roasted carrots, avocado and sunflower seeds and season with salt and pepper. Whisk together the lime juice, olive oil and honey. Drizzle over the salad and lightly toss. Top with the chopped cilantro.
