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.
Ever since I saw this recipe on My New Roots, I have been dying to try it! I finally found the time on a day off to make the Fully-Loaded Spring Samosas with Sweet n’ Spicy Mint Chutney. The filling, the coconut on top, the mint chutney (the sauce especially!), everything was so flavorful and delicious!
While my parents were over, I wanted to make a breakfast quiche. I asked what I should make and in the end spinach and tomatoes won. I had never made a spinach and tomato quiche, so after searching through recipes, I found this one from Prevention RD which is with goat cheese and a potato crust.
