Eet smakelijk, Amelie
In my previous life, when I didn't have children yet, I was (because of Otto's good example), a rather adventurous young woman who liked to travel. (at this point in my life I think it's rather adventurous to go camping in France with two toddlers, now that I'm thinking of it...maybe that ís even more adventurous!)
One of our trips was to Peru and Bolivia. And I have to say I had delicious food there!! One of the special ingredients that's being used in Peru is quinoa. It's a type of grain that's very healthy; it'contains a lot of protein, fibre and iron and is gluten-free and helps you feel full, curbing cravings. I took all of this information out of the, unmissable for me, GoodFood, which also provided the recipe; Quinoa tabbouleh.
I'ts a sort of salad with cucumber, walnuts, mint, flat-leaf parsley, spring onions, juice of lemons, olive oil, salt and peper and...quinoa. A really simple recipe and very tastefull. Fresh, summery (and this at a moment that while I'm typing this, it's pouring with rain and there's thunder, autumn in full glory!) I fried some chicken with it, wich was good, but I'm definately going to make this in summer as part of a mediterranean buffet, with things like some good Marokkan bread and hummus. You can find quinoa at the "healthy supermarket" as I use to call it, the biological store.
Have a nice meal, Amelie
