Balsamic Corn Quinoa

  • ¾ cup uncooked red quinoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 shallots or 2 small onions, quartered
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Harvest UP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups fresh corn kernels
  • 4 cups shredded greens (such as chard, spinach, etc)
  • ¼ cup torn basil leaves
  • ¼  cup torn mint leaves (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons Fresh Harvest Lemon Balsamic (You can also use our Jalapeno, Lemongrass Mint, Peach, Apricot, etc)

Cook Quinoa according to directions, or use our recipe. You want to cook about ¾ cup to 1 cup of Quinoa.

(Bring quinoa, salt, and water to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and simmer 8 to 10 minutes or until tender; drain. Cover and let stand 15 minutes. It should absorb all the liquid. If not, drain before adding to mix.)

Meanwhile, sauté shallots in hot olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat 3 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add fresh, sweet corn kernels and shredded greens; cook 3-5  minutes or just until greens are wilted. Add quinoa, basil, mint, and Fresh Harvest balsamic. Toss. Serve.

This is best warm, but can be refrigerated and re-heated or served cold for left overs.

Bring water to a light boil. Add Cauliflower and garlic cloves and cook covered 8-10 minutes (until fork tender). Drain thoroughly and return to pot. Add the Fresh Harvest olive oil, whipping cream, buttermilk, cheese, herbs and pepper. Use an immersion blender (stick blender) until pureed to a creamy, mashed potato-like consistency. To finish, drizzle with additional grated Pecorino, a drizzle of olive oil, and more chives or herbs.  This is a wonderful, low carb alternative to mashed potatoes and can also be used as a dip, spread or condiment.
