Tonight's menu

 I went to Bulk Barn on the weekend and got a few things, among which was red quinoa and decided that today would be the day to showcase it at dinner.

On the menu for this evening was:
Turkey sausage
Red quinoa
Goat cheese salad


- turkey sausage
- canola high
- 1 cup red quinoa
- 2 cups water (for soaking)
- 1 1/2 cup water (for cooking)
- 4 green onions, chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
- mixed greens
- handful of cherry tomatoes
- 6 almonds, chopped
- 1 lime
- 2 tbsp goat cheese
- radishes, slices
- salt


Soak quinoa in a bowl in water for 15 minutes. Rinse. Place quinoa small pot in water and bring to a boil. Cover with a lid, and turn the heat down to simmer. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove quinoa from heat and allow to sit five minutes with the lid on. Put quinoa in strainer to drain water. Place a few drops of oil in the pot, throw in garlic and onion. Add quinoa back and mix when onion and garlic have reached state you are happy with.

Turkey sausage
Make a few slits in turkey on a diagonal. Place a few drops of oil in pan. Fry sausages for approximately 10 minutes.

Wash all veggies. Mix together greens, cherry tomatoes, almonds and radishes. Sprinkle on goat cheese. Squeeze lime onto salad and mix everything up.

Serve and enjoy!
