What the Hell?

Plant protein power! This is a heaping pile of fiber and protein goodness. Face it, you’re looking a little bloated over there and could use some more fiber in your diet. This simple gem is chewy, nutty, filling and very satisfying. This is great warm or chilled. You could even use this in wraps or pita pockets for portable lunches.

What the hell should I drink?

A Basil Grapefruit Fizz would go down easy with this.

2 ounces vodka

3 ounces freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice

2-3 teaspoon simple syrup (equal parts of sugar and water)

3-4 large basil leaves

Club soda

Directions:

Muddle the basil leaves with the simple syrup in the bottom of a tall glass. Add ice, vodka and grapefruit juice. Stir and top with club soda.

What the hell should I listen to?

Her head’s revolving by the Three O’clock. Sweet, poppy goodness.

Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 C. quinoa
  • 2 C. vegetable broth
  • 2 C. frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 1 Tbls. freshly grated lemon zest
  • 2 Tbls. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbls. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbls. chopped fresh basil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ C. drained and diced jarred roasted red peppers
  • ¼ C. chopped pecans, preferably toasted

Instructions
  1. Toast quinoa in a dry skillet over medium heat, stirring often, until it becomes aromatic and begins to crackle, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a fine sieve and rinse thoroughly.
  2. While the quinoa is toasting, bring broth to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Add the quinoa and return to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to a simmer and cook gently for 8 minutes.
  3. Remove the lid and, without disturbing the quinoa, add edamame.
  4. Cover and continue to cook until the edamame and quinoa are tender, 7 to 8 minutes longer.
  5. Whisk lemon zest and juice, oil, basil and salt in a large bowl.
  6. Add roasted red peppers, pecans and dressing to the quinoa mixture.
  7. Toss to combine.
  8. Divide romaine among 4 plates and top with quinoa mixture.
