Quinoa is a high energy grain - actually it's a seed, that is a complete protein, high in calcium and easy to digest. Quinoa is also high in the amino acid lysine so include in your diet often if you suffer from outbreaks of cold sores. I have substituted some of the ingredients in this recipe with several kinds of dried fruits, nuts or raw vegetables. You could use salmon or leftover turkey in place of the chicken or even leave out the meat completely!
Toss all ingredients together and serve over lettuce leaves.
This quick gluten-free yeast bread is a favorite in our house. We use it warm for dipping in Olive Oil and Balsamic vinegar, as a bread with dinner and even toasted in the mornings. Recipe was adapted from The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook.
Oil a 9 x 13 inch pan with olive oil.
Place warm water and sugar into a small bowl and stir to dissolve. Add the yeast and whisk it into the warm water. Let stand for 5 - 10 minutes to activate the yeast. It should become foamy and bubbly.
Add the olive oil, honey and apple cider vinegar. Whisk together.
In a medium size bowl, mix all of the remaining dry ingredients together. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and quickly whisk together. Continue to whisk for about 30 to 60 unitl the dough thickens. Spoon dough into the oiled pan and place into a warm spot to rise for 30 to 35 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Drizzle the top of the dough with olive oil and sprinkle with coarsely ground sea salt. Bake 20 to 25 minutes and then let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.
