When I’m preparing meals for the week, I almost always have some sort of grain salad on the list. They’re like a heartier version of the typical garden salad and in the winter, much more appealing. For this version I’ve combined protein-rich quinoa with roasted broccoli and kale. Lemon and cilantro lend a bit of brightness while toasted pumpkin seeds provide a nice crunchy element. For a dose of healthy fats and potassium, avocado is tossed in at the end. This recipe was created with the farm fresh veg I get in my CSA share from Loam Agronomics. You can find the recipe here.
As we near the Christmas holiday, I decided to squeeze in one last post before taking some time off. It’s my most recent collaboration with Loam Agronomics and their lovely farm fresh CSA share I have the pleasure of receiving every week. It’s a super easy and cozy soup customizable to what you’ve got at home. It’s one of those recipes where you toss everything into one pot and end up with a comforting and nourishing bowl of goodness. Use whatever greens you’ve got available (spinach, chard, kale, mustards, beet greens, etc.) and if you don’t have celery, just use the stalks of your greens! For a bit of brightness, the soup is topped with a cilantro pistou but you could sub in another tender herb like basil, parsley, or lemon balm. Head over to the Loam site for the full recipe.
Have a very lovely holiday friends 🙂
