Chipotle Carrot, Avocado, and Kamut Salad

IngredientsChipotle Carrot Salad

  • 5-6 large carrots
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1 cup Kamut
  • 1 avocado
  • ¼ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Cilantro, for topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚.
  2. Cover Kamut with water and bring to a boil. Let cook until Kamut is tender, roughly an hour*. Drain and set aside.
  3. Cut carrots into ½” slices. Toss with two teaspoons of olive oil and ½ teaspoons chipotle powder (add more for a hotter dish). Roast for 20-25 minutes or until carrots are tender.
  4. While carrots roast, remove avocado from skin and dice into large pieces.
  5. Toss together kamut, roasted carrots, avocado, and sunflower seeds. Whisk together olive oil, honey, and lime juice. Drizzle over kamut and lightly toss. Serve with a sprinkle of cilantro.

*Notes* It is recommend to soak Kamut before cooking preferably overnight. This will cut down on cooking time.
