Mmmm Hmmmm

Tonight was the night I was going to make something new and hopefully yummy from the stack of recipes that we have from City Market. I decided to try making the Quinoa Salad, and the Golden Mushroom Pancake (after a lot of heavy meals this weekend, I thought going vegetarian would be a good idea).

It was all ridiculously delicious. Tremendously yummy.

I'm not much of a food photographer yet, but still, looks great, huh?

Quinoa Salad (adapted from City Market Deli)

1 1/2 cups quinoa
water for cooking

2-3 carrots, coarsely cut
1 bunch green onions, minced

2 cups frozen corn
1 Tbs lemon zest
2 Tbs lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1 Tbs local honey
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup fresh mint, minced

Rinse the quinoa under cold water for about a minute. Boil water, add quinoa and cook for about 10-15 minutes. Drain in a seive.

Drizzle some olive oil in a small saute pan. Sautee the carrots for a few minutes, until they aren't too hard and then add the onions, stir, and remove from heat.

Put the corn and mint into a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine the dressing ingredients, whisk together.

After everything is done cooking, put it all into the large bowl with the corn and stir it all up. Serve warm or cold, it is a great refreshing dish.
