Lemon Garlic Sesame Ginger Plate?If flavor could be illustrated in a picture by coloring (grey being flavorless) than this meal would be a tie-dye explosion! The grilled onions alone had the classic lemon-thyme-garlic taste, and the quinoa w/ sun dried tomato is bomb in itself as well. Pair those with some delicious Lemon-Ginger-Tahini dressed salad and a bit of chicken leftovers and you have yourself a feast. Yes these started separate on my plate but of course all mixed together. #1 It's key to put carrots in ice water for a little while before enjoying to make them extra crisp and crunchy!
-Dried Vegetable Quinoa with Sun Dried Tomato
-Grilled Red and White Onions (grill pan, olive oil, med-high heat, garlic, cilantro, lemon, thyme)
-Mixed Greens w/ Carrot, Tomato, Green Onion, Olive
-Tahini, Lemon, Ginger Juice
-Chicken leftovers (see below)
-Sesame Gomasio to top
Pomegranate Ginger Chicken and Sesame VegetablesWasn't trying too hard here, just some basic usuals but figured i'd include it to not make this post all lonely with one meal. #2 Steamed some vegetables, the asparagus on the bottom (requires more cooking) of the two bamboo steamers, with a bit of sesame oil and sesame seeds. So good! I then went with some Brown Basmati Rice and Adzuki Beans to accompany some chicken that I remixed in a pan with Pomegranate-Ginger Sauce and Onions. And some Tahini and Sesame Seeds to top. Quick and tasty. And that broccoli stuff is actually broccoflower, not romanesco broccoli, they each have their own slightly different yet familiar flavor, so it's nice to mix it up. Romanesco is quite hard to find though.
