You see this pic right here? It might not look like much, but, honey let me tell you, it is the bomb!
My latest obsession is quinoa. I eat it at work. I order it at restaurants. This particular tasty treat is what I’ve been making ever since my mom left. She made if for me a couple of weeks ago. I came home late one evening and she had left it sitting out. She told me to try it and I was like “eh.” The next morning, however, I decided to try it cold. She said it was better cold and Oh.My.Damn she was right. I literally ate 3 servings of it in one sitting.
When we left for New Orleans I kicked myself all the way down 85 for not bringing it for the road trip. I knew I had to make it when I returned. Last night I made my second batch. I served it as a side to some baked fish. Even Regan likes it. It might be the first time I’ve not wanted her to like something. Now I have to share!
I actually had to make it and disperse into individual containers for self-control. Otherwise I swear I’d it the entire batch in two sittings. And quinoa is a super food, so there are lots of added benefits to eating it.
Okay, so here is the recipe:
1 bunch scallions
1/3 C dried cranberries, low sugar
1 C quinoa
1-1/2 C veg stock
EVOO to dress eggplant and scallions before roasting or drizzle over rhem on the cookie sheet
Chop and roast the scallions. Cook the quinoa in vegetable or chicken stock. Peel and chop the apples.
Put everything in a bowl.
Try to control yourself. You’re welcome.
