Summer is a great time to eat lighter dishes and make use of all the unique and tasty things at the farmers market. This week I picked up garlic scapes and they are making their way into everything…..
2 cups quinoa, 1 cup water (bring to boil and then simmer until water is absorbed. Turn off heat, fluff with a fork)
1 granny smith apple, diced into small pieces
4-5 garlic scapes, diced into small pieces
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
salt and pepper, to taste
*optional, sprinkle each serving with raw cashews for crunch
After quinoa is cooked and fluffed, add the remaining ingredients to the pot and mix well. Allow to sit and cool with the lid off for 10 minutes and serve. Makes a delicious main course or summer side dish.
