Weeknights see much action in our kitchen! Hungry mouths are to be fed and our growing teenagers have a renewed sense for cooking and a greater appreciation for lovingly prepared meals. We have had made plans to eat healthier and with more attention to variety. This night was a good example of what's on our table lately. Salads and different grains and seeds, less meat and more vegetables.
|I love fresh crunchy jicamas|
We started with the preparation of our salad:
Cutting of English cucumbers, jicamas, fennel and oranges. Mixing them together with some chia seeds, roasted hazelnuts and a dressing of fresh squeezed lemon juice, Dijon mustard and olive oil. Pepper and salt to taste.
Meanwhile we cooked a quinoa and brown rice mix, warmed up yesterday's leftover Moroccan style slow cooked chicken (Tagine style). I had gotten a ready made simmering sauce and it took about 35 minutes yesterday for the chicken to be delightfully aromatic.
Had some green beens with it...Hmmm. Good.
There was nothing better.
