The dominating colour all around is green. Everything is coming back to life, eager to make the most of the abundant sunlight.
So am I. Not that my hair is turning green or something, but it really feels like this is the right colour for food right now. And this is how I came up with this very easy recipe.
What you need to feed 2 with the meal on the pic is:
1 teacup of white quinoa, washed
2-3 small courgettes, sliced
200 g spinach, stems removed, cut in large pieces
200 g white mushrooms, sliced
2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 teacups water
1/2 teaspoon crushed muscat
1/2 teaspoon dried coriander
2 pinches of chili
paprika and grounded black pepper
Heat the oil in a large frying pan (ideally with a cover) with the pepper and the paprika in it. When hot put in the garlic for 10 seconds and then add the courgettes and the mushrooms. Cover and lower the heat. Let it cook for 4-5 minutes.
Add the spinach and mix well. Now add the quinoa and the water and mix again. Sprinkle the coriander, the muscat and the chili on top.
Cook without the cover until all the water is absorbed . The quinoa should become soft and transparent.
