If you've been hanging with me for awhile here on Gluten-Free Goddess, you already know how much I dig quinoa . It's one of my favorite gluten-free grains. I've grown to love- even crave - quinoa's distinct smoky-nutty flavor. More assertive than rice or oatmeal, the taste of quinoa gives gluten-free baked goods and grainy side dishes a certain je ne sais quoi that feels nourishing, healthy, and satisfying all at once.

I know most of “us” (yes, including me) avoid barley because we think of it as health food. And health food is not supposed to taste good right? When barley is prepared properly and seasoned well, it can transform into gourmet food. Barley is a very versatile grain with a pleasant nutty flavor. These little grains are filled to the brim with nutritional benefits, the best one being the fiber content.

Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, and I’d like to share this exceedingly meatless treat with you that I’ve been saving since December. It’s absolutely, positively, delicious. Let me begin by warning you that this dish contains tofu. I just laughed when I typed “tofu.” It ain’t exactly…my thang. But guess what?
My favorite term of endearment in French has always been mon petit chou chou , which literally translated means “my little cabbage cabbage”. The French use it to mean something like “my sweetheart,” and it may or may not actually refer to a pastry instead of cabbage. Regardless, the literal translation made me giggle when I learned it in high school and it still makes me giggle today.
My daughter E graduated from middle school on Monday, so she’s officially a high schooler now. Yes, a high schooler. Those of you who picture her as she appeared in her first photo on this blog can perhaps appreciate how strange it feels to look at her and see both that nine-year-old girl and the beautiful, smart young woman that she’s becoming.
First off, this dish is not called “spinach and chickpeas”, it is espinacas con garbanzos . Don’t you agree? “Spinach and chickpeas” is something you eat because you should — it is healthy and you aspire to be. Espinacas con garbanzos is something you eat because it sounds sexy, and doesn’t taste half bad either. It’s hearty and smoky with a little kick, you eat it on little fried bread toasts at a tapas bar in Spain.
