|Savory quinoa with pomegranate, basil and celery.|
The star of breakfast this morning was this beauty:
|A beautifully ripe pomegranate.|
To the quinoa I added 1 Tbsp of nutritional yeast, 1 tsp of greek yogurt and some cracked black pepper.
I let the quinoa warm through and then added 3 fresh basil leaves, chopped fine. As soon as the basil was fragrant, I tossed in a couple of handfuls of pomegranate seeds and one stalk of celery, chopped fine.
Then it all went into a bowl and quickly into my tummy:-)
It was an interesting dish - I liked the hint of cheesiness of the quinoa and that paired well with the cool crunch of the celery and the citrusy bite of the pomegranate and the occasional herbal burst from the basil.
I have been in what I can only describe as a 'dull' mood since I returned from my trip.
This morning I decided I needed an exciting goal to pick up my spirits. I have decided to select some of my favorite dishes from local restaurants and remake them at home.
The first dish on my list? Mantu.
|Dumplings filled with ground lamb and onions and topped with yogurt and vegetable sauce.|
So, tomorrow I am heading over to enjoy some mantu and then I will try remaking it on Saturday. Wish me luck!
I hope everyone is having a great Thursday!
