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!
Green Sauce in my household can either mean a chimichurri style sauce that my dad used to make when I was growing up, or a honey-cilantro-chili sauce, sometimes even a mixture of both. Green sauce is a blanketed term for a delicious (yes, green) blend of herbs perfectly crafted to enhance any dish. I keep a big jar of it in the fridge and use it in salad dressings, over oven roasted vegetables, as a marinade for proteins, you name it. It's not only delicious but it is a fantastic way to get in a lot of chelating (metal detoxifying) greens like parsley and cilantro!
I love Indian food but never go for the chickpea-centered dishes. I enjoy chickpeas, but I'm never crazy about making a meal of them. With that said, I am crazy about these chickpeas! I wanted to make something that was a little different but still took 30 minutes and not a lot of work. Hey, I'm on vacation- I'm feeling like a lounge-lizard here. Can I be blamed? This recipe is enough for 4-6 people, but since we were only two we ended up eating this for 3 days straight and oh my god it was just as phenomenal on day 2 and 3 was it was the first bite.
Wowza! It's been just about 3 weeks since I last posted. April has been extremely hectic for me, to say in the least. I was border line nervous break for basically the entire month, but with that said... I PASSED MY SECOND NATIONAL BOARD EXAM! That's right. I'm now officially eligible for licensure as an acupuncture physician in many states- just not the one I live in! Hah. It feels great though to know I can practice in many of the states I'm so in love with. I have two more board exams to take in order to practice here though and upon completion I will be a Diplomat of Traditional Chinese Medicine which covers TCM herbology as well. With that said... on to my next one! Just kidding, I'm taking a week off to pamper myself before hitting the books again. Anyways, last week I made these delicious taco lettuce boats that ultimately fell apart due to my poor choice in purchasing baby romaine spears rather than a large head of romaine lettuce. If you go with the large head the taco lettuce boats will surely be a success, otherwise it'll default into taco salad which is still rad.
