Whenever I have an upset stomach, I make this dish. It’s easy to make, as all ingredients are boiled and then tossed together.
I am trying to warm up to quinoa (with little success, so far). I got this recipe from the President’s Choice mobile app and used a bit less cheese than recommended. The recipe is fairly simple, and since the link is above, I won’t summarize it here. Suffice it to say you need quinoa, leeks, bell peppers, eggs and some cheese.
It’s been really difficult to update the blog lately. Way too much work, no time to sit down and write. Such is life… But tonight’s different and we’re having nachos with home made salsa and sour cream.
There’s not much to share, really. You need some really good tortilla chips – I like the organic (i.e, expensive…) ones from the organic aisle in Superstore. You’ll also need Mozzarella cheese – I buy the cheap, no name bar from Superstore. You’ll need sour cream, and the ingredients for the salsa: tomatoes, bell pepper, avocado, green onion, salt, pepper, fresh or dried cilantro, lemon.
Whenever I run out of food and I am at home, I take out a piece of salmon from the freezer (or buy one, usually from Superstore). All I have to do is prepare a good marinade, throw the salmon in the oven, and make sure I don’t over cook it. I like this marinade because it brings together three flavors: mustard, yogurt and dill.
Frozen mackerel pack from Superstore – around $9 + Simple recipe = great lunch/ dinner! While traveling, I had the chance to eat this really great grilled mackerel. It was so simple, yet so delicious, that I was determined to replicate it at home. Alas, I can’t BBQ – but if you do have a BBQ, try it grilled.
Makes around 14 small muffins.
Another easy to make side dish: peel, cut, throw into the oven and eat. It takes 10 minutes to prepare the veggies and around 45 minutes to bake in the oven. You can add pretty much whatever veggies are in season and you can play with the herbs. For extra flavor, add Feta cheese (here’s another version of this recipe).
