Lately,our weekends have been filled with some pretty extravagant eats.After a few weeks in a row of food & wine fests,gelato fests(oh,yes),and dinners out with friends,我有点过分沉溺，to say the least.奎奴亚拯救！!
Nothing helps me feel more grounded than a bowl of quinoa piled with veggies.如果你事先准备好了这些东西，这个碗就很简单了。I like to make a big batch of quinoa and keep it in the fridge all week.Same withpesto… and this week I happened to have these泡菜干在手边。
I cooked up some mushrooms with my new favorite combo – balsamic & soy sauce – then piled the veggies into bowls. I you haven't pickled chard yet,you could sub in some dried fruit for a pop of sweetness.
Here's to a happy healthy weekend!(With maybe just a小的scoop of gelato).
- Cook your quinoa and make your pesto (both can be done ahead).
- 把一个大平底锅加热到中等温度。Add a splash of olive oil (or coconut oil),到平底锅，then add the mushrooms and a few pinches of salt.Toss to coat and then let the mushrooms cook (without touching them) for a couple of minutes.Stir,and let them continue browning on all sides.(This happens when you stir them only occasionally so they can caramelize).
- Once your mushrooms are starting to really brown,add a splash of balsamic vinegar and stir.Add a smaller splash of soy sauce,再次搅拌。Let cook for (about) 30 seconds more and remove them from the pan.Taste and adjust seasonings.（注意-如果你把它们过咸了，just salt your quinoa less).
- Assemble bowls with quinoa,mushrooms,spinach,tofu,radishes,毛豆，chard stems,and a dollop of pesto.（或者任何你喜欢的蔬菜）。
