Is it lunch time yet? This is one of my favorite quinoa dishes. It’s a version of tabouleh that I first tasted and learned how to make while a student at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. It's been one of my standard dishes since I trained there in 2001.
This dish can be served as a meal all by itself or as a salad. It's easy to make and delicious! I enjoy the quinoa – instead of the traditional bulgur wheat – for it's protein and lightness. Add this tasty ancient seed to your menu. You’ll be glad you did!
And … if you can't find quinoa at your local health food store, Trader Joe's or Whole Foods you can check out Viva Lab's Quinoa on Amazon and get a home delivery.
This soup is a frequent flyer in my home. It's a perfect fall and winter soup. The ingredients are easily available and it's a quick prep and cook. The root vegetables are great for grounding and the ginger adds a warming touch. A perfect soup for a cold and clammy day.
Blending this soup is a cinch with a Vitamix 5300, my favorite healthy kitchen tool! I've owned one for eight years and it's still going strong. Enjoy!
