Coconut Quinoa Spinach Salad and Bacon, Avocado, & Tomato Club Sandwiches

Coconut Quinoa Spinach Salad

Coconut Quinoa Spinach Salad

I love a good salad  and Sprouted Kitchen’s Coconut Quinoa + Spinach Salad is delicious! So many flavors – raw spinach, quinoa cooked in coconut milk, shallots cooked in coconut oil, pistachios, pomegranate, and a lemon-thyme dressing. Fresh and perfect for the hot weather we’re having right now in Belgium! Although there aren’t too many ingredients it still takes time to make. First, I had to open all of the pistachio shells. Second, I never realized how hard it is to get all of the arils (the red drops holding the seeds) loose from the fruit. Normally I press the pomegranate for its juice and I wasn’t even sure you could eat the whole aril but luckily I have access to the internet and found out via Live Strong that not only are they edible but nutritious.

Koen and I also love Sunday brunch. Every Sunday we make a special meal to start off our day. Most recently Koen made a delicious layered sandwich with bacon, avocado, and tomatoes – yum!
