Hot Cold Summer

Hot Cold Life

Quinoa & raw garlic (shaved with the microplane, so nice!) with arugula, avocado, fresh corn, parsley & cherry tomatoes

It’s been a minute since we had a snacks only post – but we’re still eating. The reader might note a theme here – hot cold salads with quinoa. Harpo & I acquired a large amount of quinoa for the Drunken Boot Quinoa Crispies, but ended up only toasting and using part of it. Regardless of the grain – the hot/cold salad is one of my favorite summer snacks. In this iteration it was mainly arugula & quinoa, tho any combination of grain & green works; amaranth & massaged kale, brown rice & spinach (with lemon tahini dressing iz my personal favorite) and always topped with some fresh herb and other seasonal summer veggies for texture and color. Also, avocado A+ both for fat content and because, as vegetarians, really what else is there…
