My Daughter's Quinoa Salad~
I tried quinoa last year and liked it..enough..
but I didn't love it..
Now I do..
Cold..and in a salad.
All she does is combine 1 part Quinoa Bio.. with 2 parts water(I used broth)..and let it cook until all the liquid is absorbed..
Let cool..add the juice of one lemon.. 2 tbsps of EVOO..fresh mint..chopped spring onions and red peppers(I didn't have any)..I added basil..because we have some in the garden..season to taste.
It's a new addiction for me.It's simply delicious.
We've since experimented w/ kalamata olives..feta..crumbled..red quinoa..I eat some almost every day:)
It's a superfood..and with added color..it's exquisitely beautiful..and quite like little pearls..My daughter's salad is always better than mine..I just keep trying:)
I love the way my neighbor's /friend gardening basket looks..
We're all so different w/ the way we garden and the tools we use.
Look.. you will see the way..the accoutrements..are often so well suited to the person.
This basket to me is artistic..and creative..and beautiful.
