Quinoa Pilaf

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
A good basic guide that can adapt to numerous possibilities. This was my first time trying quinoa (finally) and I followed the tips of others making sure to rinse the quinoa well. Then I added 1 clove garlic minced with onion, used chicken stock and a tablespoon of tomato purée (paste), omitted carrots (just personal taste), then finished with the nuts, parsley and some crumbled blue cheese. Yum! As I was eating it, I kept thinking of other things to incorporate...fresh greens maybe or peppers or olives. Thanks for posting!

Jade Garden Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
When I saw the title of the recipe I thought it may have an Asian/Oriental twist but then it didn't seem like it upon reading the ingredients. So given what was in my fridge, I thought I'd give it a try. I used shallots in place of onion, finely chopped lemon grass and red chile in place of the celery. I sauteed the veggies and chillies first, then added 1/2 cup jasmine rice, then the stock. I cut the cooking time in half, give or take. Then I turned off the heat and stirred in spinach/arugula/mizuna lettuce mix and chopped chinese cabbage and a good handful of parsley (all I had). Blitzed it in the blender with a bit of water, returned it to the pan and reheated, adding soy sauce at the end - about 1/4 cup. Fab! Really flavourful.
