This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy quinoa- the only reason why I haven't posted this sooner is because I never manage to get a good picture before it gets scarfed down. Finally I decided to just post this without a great picture because frankly, you deserve this recipe!
I'm not sure about the rest of the country but it is hotttt here in Jacksonville, FL. Spring, thank you for showing face for about 2 weeks... next time feel free to stick around longer.
When I lived in South Florida we really only had 2 seasons, Deathly Hot and Warm, at least in Jacksonville we have Cool, Chilly, Warm, and Deathly Hot (can't avoid that one sadly). Hey, I'll take what I can get. This watermelon salad will cool you right off. It's perfect for BBQ weather (or basically the majority of the year weather if you're in Florida)
Aka, the easiest throw-together appetizer. This is my kinda dish. I love mushrooms, and I love them even more when they're stuffed with pesto. Give them a try! They're seriously easy to make.
Simple foods are always the absolute best foods. Maybe I acquired this mindset from my grandmother, Mimi. She would always emphasize fresh ingredients, a little salt and good quality oil and you can throw together the most delicious dish. It's so true. I think allowing the ingredients to shine is something we often forget when we make big complex recipes. This salad is classic, it's basic, and it's perfect.
Pheww, that's a mouth full! This a great dish simply because you can modify it to accommodate whatever vegetables you currently have in your fridge/freezer. In it's original form it has both savory and smokey notes with sweetness from the pesto. It's a winner, hands down.
Last week I was so cold. Ice cold. My finger tips were frozen and I just wanted a big bowl of warm hearty soup, this soup in particular. It's a modification of the Pesto Soup that Isa Chandler has up on her website, but I omitted the gnocchi and doubled the beans. To each her own, I do my absolute best to limit my gluten intake for when I am absolutely craving it (like that one time two weeks ago I was literally dying for pizza). Like I always say: everything in moderation! Do your best to make the healthiest daily choices without being too hard on yourself for when you occasionally indulge. Anyways, I'm drifting here. This soup was really delightful and I think you should give it a try.
