Quinoa with Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Dried Cranberries

6 Comments 27 March 2014

This is a great  gluten–free recipe to serve on Mother’s Day. I made it this week for Shabbat lunch. Thanks to Paula Shoyer for sending it in to The Jewish Hostess. Check out her new book “The Kosher Baker.”
I added fresh corn to this salad.
The Kosher Baker: Over 160 Dairy-free Recipes from Traditional to Trendy

By Paula Shoyer

serves 8

  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup fresh corn
  • 1 medium sweet potato, cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts, toasted, optional
  • 3 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 3 scallions, sliced thin

Directions

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Place the quinoa into a small saucepan and add 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 15 minutes, covered, or until the water is evaporated. Turn off the heat and let quinoa sit covered for at least one hour, up to 8 hours.  While the quinoa is sitting, place the sweet potato cubes into a roasting pan and toss with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Bake for 25 minutes, stirring once or twice, or until you can just pierce the cubes with a fork. Set aside.

Place the pine nuts into a small pan over medium heat and cook until lightly toasted, stirring often. Watch carefully so they do not burn. Set aside.  In a small bowl, place the remaining two tablespoons olive oil, vinegar, honey, salt, pepper, cumin and cinnamon. Whisk well.

When the quinoa is dry, use a whisk to break apart the grains. Add the vinaigrette and mix with the whisk. Add the sweet potatoes, pine nuts, cranberries and scallions and mix gently. Serve at room temperature.

Asparagus Pesto by Mark Bittman

Summer entertaining means pulling out pre-made gourmet extras from the freezer, and pesto is usually one of them. Pesto- (meaning paste) is  a no-brainer for pasta, or is great drizzled on sliced  mozarella cheese.  This recipe for asparagus pesto is a fresh twist on pasta-in-tupperware on the beach,  served on veggies as a side dish for barbeque (omit the cheese if serving meat), and as Mark Bittman suggests, you can even spread it on fish.

This recipe is quick in preparation.

Make and freeze in ice cube trays or flatten in baggies in the freezer.

RECIPE

Asparagus Pesto

Published: May 7, 2010

Time: 20 minutes

  • Salt
  • 1 pound asparagus, peeled, trimmed, and cut into 2-inch segments
  • 1 clove garlic, or more to taste
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, or more as desired
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon, or to taste.

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt it. Add the asparagus and cook until fully tender but not mushy, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain well, reserving some of the cooking liquid, and let the asparagus cool slightly.

2. Transfer the asparagus to a food processor and add the garlic, pine nuts, 2 tablespoons of the oil, Parmesan, a pinch of salt and a couple of tablespoons of the cooking liquid. Process the mixture, stopping to scrape down the sides of the container if necessary, and gradually add the remaining oil and a bit more of the reserved cooking liquid to moisten if necessary. Add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper to taste, pulse one last time, and serve over pasta, fish or chicken (or cover and refrigerate for up to a day).

Yield: 4 to 6 servings (about 1 1/2 cups).

Wild Salmon Chunks Served on a Bed of Baby Spinach

No Comments 10 March 2012

I’m always on the lookout for grilled salmon recipes, and when I came across this sauteed salmon recipe idea from my friends over at kosher.com and Joy of Kosher, I was inspired to put in on my before- the-fast menu .

 Health benefits of wild salmon:

  • speeds up your metabolism. This facilitates your sugar absorption rate and can lower your blood sugar level. Which in turn lowers your risk of developing diabetes.
  • For  shiny hair, bright eyes and healthy skin,  salmon consumption can do provide that as well.
  • Four ounces of wild salmon gives you a full day’s required amount of Vitamin D. That same amount of salmon also gives you more than half of the B12, niacin and selenium that you need daily. That four ounce serving of salmon gives you almost thirty grams of protein. That’s more than half of the Food and Drug Administration’s recommended daily amount.
  • salmon is a natural anti-depressant
  • Warning: FDA and EPA have  issued a recommendation that pregnant women and young children eat no more than two servings, or 12 ounces, of salmon and other low-mercury fish each week.
  • Read about mercury in farm raised salmon as opposed to wild salmon HERE

Health benefits of baby spinach:

  • A cup of spinach contains a little under 7 calories, almost a gram of fiber, and high levels of vitamins A and C.
  • Spinach has tons  of anti-cancer benefits. It has four times the beta carotene of broccoli. Spinach is also an excellent source of folate – an ounce contains nearly 25% of our daily requirement.
  • Spinach protects against age-related macular degeneration, a serious eye disease affecting older people.
  • Spinach contains folate which has cardiovascular benefits and promotes a healthy pregnancy.
  • Note: Spinach is among the 12 foods on which high levels of pesticide residues have been highly detected.  Please consider buying and eating only organically grown spinach.

Wild Salmon Chunks Served on a Bed of Baby Spinach:

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons: olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds:salmon fillet, skinned and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded, veins removed, diced
  • 1/2 green, yellow or orange bell pepper, seeded, veins removed, diced
  • 1/2 cup:golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup:pine nuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon:salt
  • 1 (10-ounce) package:baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite homemade vinaigrette.

Preparation:

  1. In a 12-inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add salmon, peppers, raisins, pine nuts and salt.
  2. Sauté for 7-8 minutes, until salmon is opaque and peppers are tender.
  3. Place baby spinach in a salad bowl and spoon warm salmon mixture over spinach.
  4. Drizzle balsamic dressing over the salad and serve warm or at room temperature.

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto- Six Ingredients

No Comments 10 November 2010

Six Ingredients for the New Bride (or tired mom):

My family is not loving  regular pesto made with basil, so I decided to try this recipe by Giada.

Kids and adults loved it this past Shabbat lunch, including my one year old nephew,  who literally – practically,  devoured his plate.

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto by Giada De Laurentiis

  • 12 ounces penne pasta
  • 1 (8.5-ounce) jar sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup (packed) fresh basil leaves OR 1/4 cup of prepared basil pesto
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • toasted pine nuts (optional)

Directions for this Kosher Recipe

Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/2  cup of the cooking liquid.

Meanwhile, blend the sun-dried tomatoes and their oil, garlic, salt and pepper,pine nuts(optional) to taste, and basil  or pre-made pesto in a food processor and blend until the tomatoes are finely chopped. Transfer the tomato mixture to a large bowl. Stir in the Parmesan, or omit to make it pareve.

Add the pasta to the pesto and toss to coat, adding enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten. Season the pasta, to taste, with salt and pepper and serve with toasted pine nuts on top.
