This was very very good even though I don’t know what keenwah is! If I read it: Quinoa I can’t remember how to pronounce it and if I hear it said like: Keenwah I can’t remember how to spell it. Yes, a terrible dilemma. I was tempted to leave out the whole part that we ate our stir-fry over Quinoa so I wouldn’t have to remember how to spell it. There, it’s out, I’ve said it
I ate it, it’s a sorta grain thing but it’s not millet and it’s not couscous .
Crobi started by getting out all the ingredients. This was great, all I had to do was take the pictures! When I’m taking photos and cooking I often miss steps because my hands are sticky. Or I just plain daydream about something and forget.
Then the vegetable chopping. First the carrots.
And there is something about bright orange carrots that call to small fingers from way across the room
and the small fingers come
and take away little bits of carrot.
Slice Brussel sprouts. They are perfectly yummy I assure you. Even if you think you don’t like them and have had them as your arch enemy for years give them a try. I did just that and found we really hit it off after years of not speaking, it had been so long neither of us even knew how the bad feeling came about. So now we try to make up for lost time and enjoy each other’s company whenever possible,
Forgiveness is a beautiful thing.
Even if it’s forgiving brussel sprouts
pour in some olive oil.
toss in minced garlic.
The chopped carrots.
While those start to cook chop some mushrooms.
And some zucchini.
Check on the carrots.
Some soy sauce, I don’t know how much.
Some tamari ginger.
Ground ginger, a pinch or a few shakes.
Toss in the Zucchini and Asparagus
Cut up some broccoli and kale
and toss them in.
Sprinkle in some,somekind of seeds, they seemed smaller than flax seeds, they weren’t poppy seeds. Anyway some “good for you seeds”.
Flax oil, that’s where the flax part of the recipe is! I was there, took the pictures and ate it but remembering what the novel new ingredients are is another story.
add the spinach
and put the lid on.
Then distract the cook by taking pictures of her newly published book. It may be just a proof but it looks pretty official and published to me. I was impressed.
Then realize that you never put in the corn or the brussel sprouts!
Quick throw them in.
OK, everything is in! Let it cook until the brussel sprouts are cooked but not mushy.
serve over quinoa.
top with peanuts.
Plan to visit Crobinator often.
