Blogging Marathon# 46: Week 2/ Day 1
Theme: Lemon/ Lime Recipes
Dish: Cilantro-Lime Quinoa
We are starting another week of Blogging marathon today and my theme for this week is ‘Lemon/ Lime recipes‘. Adding lemon juice to any dish brings out the flavor and makes it taste refreshing.
I wanted to make Cilantro-Lime rice for today, but used quinoa instead of rice and made this cilantro-lime quinoa. This is a light and fresh tasting dish that is a great alternate to plain quinoa. Lime and fresh herbs make this dish a perfect complement to heavier stews and fried foods, and it’s super simple to put together, too, a great plus when there are other dishes cooking on the stovetop.
I served this with some spicy black beans and roasted vegetables. Even my picky son loved the combination. I wanted to take a photo of all the dishes together but the kids got hungry before I could click the photos and ate up all the accompaniments — I saved a bowl of quinoa to take these photos.
