Cook’s Delight® Organic Vegetable Soup Base
If making with chicken, cook chicken breasts and shred with fork. Set aside and cool.
In a medium sauce pan, stir Cook's Delight® Vegetable Base into water. Add quinoa and bring to boil over high heat.
Stir. Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer until the quinoa is tender, and the water has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.
Fluff with a fork and transfer to a bowl large enough to hold all remaining ingredients and cool.
While quinoa is cooking, combine olive oil, lime juice, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, Cook's Delight® Mushroom Stock Concentrate and honey in a bowl. Stir and set dressing aside.
After the quinoa is cool, add the cabbage, carrots, green onions, basil, cilantro, jalapeno pepper and shredded chicken and toss to combine.
Add the dressing to the bowl of ingredients and toss. Taste and season additionally, if desired.
Chill salad and top with peanuts before serving.
