As I head in to this weekend I wanted to leave you all non-cleansers with another quinoa tip, since us cleansers are entering the intensive 3-day broth only detox! So, this suggestion is brought to you by a good friend of mine from Louisiana! We’ll call her Nola, she’s not from NOLA but I did do Mardi Gras with her 🙂
Her genius brain suggested putting a spoonful of pesto or some chopped basil, garlic and evoo into the quinoa. Brilliant!!! Then she further blew my mind by saying add a little Greek yogurt for a creamy variation when one is not cleansing. DUH! why didn’t I think of that??
I tried it, it was simply divine. I can’t wait to try it with some Greek yogurt after the cleanse!
Below is pictured my favorite quinoa prep by far, again, many thanks to Nola for this one!
1) prepare 1/2 cup quinoa in 1 cup boiling veg stock
2) add 1-2 tblsp pesto
3) add 2 ish tblsp plain greek yogurt
4) stir to combine
5) top with poached egg and fresh ground pepper
Holy smokes, this is seriously good. As ever, happy eating!
