This lovely quinoa salad is delicious.
I sound like a real estate agent describing a home..:"This lovely home is charming.."~
Anyways it doesn't need a little TLC..it just needs you to make it and enjoy it;)
You have to like sweet.I changed up the recipe because the recipe was just too large amount wise for Jacques and I..
I used 1/2 cup dry regular quinoa to 1 cup broth..and proceeded to amend the quantities of the other ingredients..
I used 1/2 mango..a handful of raisins etc..all according to taste.
I must say it is wonderful..the edamame stay slightly crunchy..the coconut is refreshing,the slightly toasted almonds..very good.You could add spinach too..
I have made it full recipe too since then..and added CHICKPEAS..Yum!
Did I share my fave spinach this year?
It's so different..Frédérick gave me seeds he had saved.. they came from a friend..from her mom in Italy..supposed to be a perennial..unfortunately F had to do away with the garden that his spinach was in..for access to start cutting an 800 yr old tree down.
But it HAD started growing I saw it with my own eyes..and last night he told me it had come back in another place he had it in..Imagine.
I am hoping mine will come back but want to save seeds..have to find out when.So different from our reg.spinach..that too..I pick off pieces and chew :)Look at it healthy..sturdy gorgeous..It's getting leggy now..but not ugly so.
I found the recipe here.. for that great quinoa salad..I think it is a copy cat Whole Foods..Marie ..again I apologize for the heavy quinoa laden post;)
I always think of you now when I make my quinoa salads..
It's a keeper and so easy.I eat it as a meal..Jacques adds a meli-melo of other things on his plate..some of his charcuterie..some cheese..tomatoes..broccoli..
I find I don't want to taste anything else but this:)
The scenery is changing quite quickly here..I have transplanted a few things..but we are in for a heat wave..so I'll pause now for a few days..and continue with the garden transplanting in cooler weather:)
The Littles are back in school today..they have their wishes of which teachers they would like..I hope they get the one they want:)
Noah's mom is already back in the swing of things ..making his lunch napkins..for the week;)
September always feels like a new year to me..I guess because of school..and then being a realtor all those years..things always geared up come September..after the summer holidays..
Let's all have a good new year ~
Shhh...because tomorrow..IS September first....
Have you seen this speaking of kindergarden?
Smile..you will smile..
I showed Jacques..he pretty much agrees with some of the comments..(bratty etc..)
Me? I thought it was so funny.
I love Littles.
