Quinoa is so versatile. You can do pretty much anything with it – make quinoa upma, use in salads or even soups and also use to make burgers.! Truly versatile. Plus so healthy for you. Hence I always have a stock of quinoa on hand in my pantry. It’s one of my favorite and ‘easy to make lunch specials’ for work.
Two weeks ago I went ‘nectarine picking’. Yes all by myself – well not quite I guess since rest of the family waited in the car while I was determined to pick my favorite nectarines and peaches even though it was pouring cats and dogs. Well people, it was the last weekend for peaches and how could I not pick?
Anyways I made a delicious minty quinoa salad with nectarines and oranges! For the dressing, I used a dash of harissa paste, which has coriander and cilantro in lime juice and olive oil. So what if summer has come to an end and fall is ‘falling’ upon us. I want to retain the summery feeling for now and continue to bask in it for some more time….
