Double Broccoli Quinoa Recipe

Double Broccoli Quinoa Recipe
This double broccoli quinoa bowl is a favorite of mine. I cook up lots of broccoli, then puree half of it into a pesto. The other half is cut into little florets. Tossed with some quinoa, sliced avocado, and a drizzle of feisty chile pepper oil, it makes a nice meal and I hope you like it as much as I do. If you don't have quinoa, you can certainly swap in a pasta or any number of other foundation ingredients. Farro would be nice, millet might work, barley, pearled barley, or even your favorite brown rice. I should mention that I do like this served with a bit of feta crumbled on top. 3 cups cooked quinoa* 5 cups raw broccoli, cut into small florets and stems 3 medium garlic cloves 2/3 cup sliced or slivered almonds, toasted 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan 2 big pinches salt 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1/4 cup olive oil 1/4 cup heavy cream Optional toppings: slivered basil, fire oil (optional)**, sliced avocado crumbled feta or goat cheese Heat the quinoa and set aside.

Easter Cupcakes Baked in Real Egg Shells I watched my Grandmother’s face when she realized that I hadn’t handed her a hard boiled egg but rather a cake baked inside a real egg shell. Her eyes were filled with wonder and I could envision what she must have looked like as a tyke the very first time she saw a red balloon float across the sky or the the trunk of a giant elephant spewing a stream of water. “Crack it on the table,” I told her. Eggs were cracked, cupcakes were eaten, and I was perceived as a cupcake Houdini. Update 3/19/2012: For the basic instructions on these Easter cupcakes, keep reading. To see another example of them with dyed eggs and cream cheese “yolk” filling, see my latest version of these Easter cupcakes.

Broccoli Cheese Soup *Update (10/2011): We continue to love this soup (and eat it often)! I’ve edited the recipe just a bit to enhance with a bit of salt and flesh out some of the details. Enjoy! I could sum up this post by the following statement from my husband while devouring this meal: “This is the ultimate perfect dinner.” Of course it could have been atmosphere since it had snowed all day and was the perfect night for soup, but still, when we were fighting over the last scoops in the pot, I knew this had to be a winner. I received this recipe from a commenter, Liz, who has tried several recipes from here.

rainbow quinoa taco salad — hot for food Our only diet secret is easy. Eat all the colours of the rainbow, most of the time!

HEMSLEY + HEMSLEY - healthy food and living Introduction Traditional risotto rice is refined and starchy which can often leave you feeling bloated and heavy by the time you’ve finished eating. Texturally, quinoa seeds make an ideal substitute as well as adding a nutty flavour. As a bonus they are quicker to cook and add a good helping of protein to this dish - Italians please don’t be too annoyed, we know risotto means rice! Ideally, soak your quinoa the night before for better digestion and maximum nutrients, but if you can’t or don’t, don’t feel bad!

Secret #2: There is a rainbow hiding inside the cake. The leprechaun will discover this as he eats his way to freedom.
