Best Quinoa Ever!

I've taken up cooking. No joke. I even make my kids call me Masterchef. It all started when I bought the cookbook Nourishing Friends. So far everything I've made has been a hit. Here's a variation on a quinoa recipe.


Quinoa with Red and Yellow Peppers

2 c Quinoa
3 c water
3 peppers cut into 1" pieces
6 cloves of minced garlic

Bring water and quinoa to a boil and then simmer on low for 15 minutes

In a saucepan sauté the garlic and the peppers until soft

Dressing
1/4 c Tamari
2 tbsp agave nectar (found in any health food store)
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
6 green onions thinly sliced
*Estrogen (optional)

Add everything together and enjoy.


I find that THIS...
...makes walking into THIS (my garage)...
...all the more bearable!
You can substitute estrogen with eating while lying naked on a marble floor which has a similar refreshing flavour.

To paraphrase Costanza: "Quinoa - it's the pesto of grains"

Srsly, 10 years ago it didn't exist. Now you can't get away from it. Though yours loooks delish!

I'd definitely leave out the estrogen for you. On a somewhat unrelated topic I will now be saying the word paella all day long.
