The other night, I had a calling for quinoa and when I got home I thought about sauerkraut also so…
…I combined them both. I made a quick & easy din-din for myself with time to spare for baking carob cookies (more on that in another post).
1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
2 tbs tomato paste
2 green onions, chopped
handful of cilantro, chopped
1/2 tbs of cajun seasoning (thanks to my friend, Sonya, who gave me a little jar of it for Xmas)
Quinoa helps in reducing migraine headaches, keeps you full longer by having your body digest it slowly, and helps the digestive system run smoothly with it’s high content of fibre.
Wash quinoa in bowl to help rid of the bitter taste and possible toxicity, you’ll notice the water turn somewhat foggy that fog is saponin which is a toxic compound. Usually when you buy quinoa it has already been washed but washing it again won’t hurt.
Place quinoa and water in pot over medium heat, while it’s cooking itself up add your green onions, cajun spice and the dash of salt.
Once you don’t see very much water, mix in tomato paste and cilantro. Voila!
1 bunch of asparagus
1 tbs olive oil
dash of salt
Asparagus is packed with antioxidants, helps fight against inflammation, stabilize our digestion.
Cut each asparagus in half while olive oil heats up in pan.
Wet fingers over tap water and flick hand over pan to see if the water sizzles. If it does, add asparagus.
Your tasty asparagus is ready once the edges are golden brown. Sprinkle a bit of salt and eat away.
1 cup sauerkraut
bunch of cilantro
Promoting the growth of healthy bowel flora, sauerkraut helps in the improvement of digestion by offering up fibre and lactic acid bacteria.
That’s it, no preparation. Just put some on your plate with some cilantro on top and voila!
And there you have it, tasty, easy, and with time to spare!asparagus quinoa sauerkraut
