Quinoa salads and crumb-coated broccoli

FFwD in April brings again quite nice recipes to our table and a lot of fun in the kitchen. Here is the schedule for this month:

    April 1, 2011- quinoa, fruit and nut salad
    April 8, 2011- garlicky crumb-coated broccoli
    April 15, 2011- vanilla eclairs
    April 22, 2011- mustard batons
    April 29, 2011- bistrot paul bert pepper steak

We made the quinoa, fruit and nut salad for lunch at work. It was nice but as by the beggar’s linguine, it is not our favorite combination. Very good but just not our kind of comfort food.

The week before we had made another quinoa salad from WholeLiving (photo on the left). This one was soooo delicious. It is for sure a keeper, and we will include it regularly in our meal plans. Give it a try!

We have actually try recently this quinoa hash which is also superb.

The garlicky crumb-coated broccoli came also shortly after to our table. It is very good, not better than the usual dishes we prepare with broccoli, but for sure a good dish to alternate, and a great side dish.
