John, my husband, and I have been enjoying Meatless Mondays. We have some favorite vegetarian recipes, and are having fun finding some new ones. I thought I’d share a couple with you.
First, I made Lemon Mint Quinoa Salad last night. Rather than just the white quinoa, I used white, red, and black. It was very colorful. One of the keys (we learned the hard way) is to rinse the quinoa for a couple of minutes in a sieve. This removes the bitter outer coating called saponins. You’ll know if you don’t rinse long enough.
The second recipe is one John found in this month’s Runner’s World – Watermelon Salad. One of my favorite things about summer is watermelon. Neither of us thought the salad would be filling, but were we wrong! I’ve shared this recipe with several others and everyone is craving it.
Let me know if you give them a try!
