Let us start with: Thanks to chef Julie Morris for inspiring this recipe with your Quinoa with Secret Pesto and Sun Dried Tomatoes Recipe!
Inspired by Julie’s recipe we went shopping today and worked with what we could get:
– Organic Quinoa
– Sun-dried Tomatoes
– Organic Arugula
– Red Onions
– Pecorino Cheese (Sheep)
Put Quninoa with some non cleansed sea salt and a dried chilli in a pot, add about 2.5 times the water and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat and let simmer until the water is gone.
In the meanwhile you can prepare the home made arugula-walnut pesto. Crush some walnut seeds and mix in a fresh chilli, a handful of organic arugula, garlic and plenty of good olive oil. Season with non cleansed sea salt and pepper and mix with an immersion blender. Season with more chilli to your taste.
Fry some sun dried tomatoes, onions, garlic and some extra chilli to add spice – then mix the Quinoa, your home made pesto, onions, garlic and chilli put a good portion on a plate, sun-dried tomatoes on top and you are good to go for a fantastic an healthy meal.
For those who eat milk products, you can add some Pecorino cheese (sheep) to your pesto as well as on top of the finished meal for some extra taste!
Enjoy and thanks again chef Julie!
