Ancient Harvest recipe roundup: April
It’s a busy, busy month with another different but equally busy ahead. I’ve been wanting to write up a vegan sweet potato enchilada recipe we’re loving, but it’s going to have to wait another day or two. In the meantime, here are some of the latest recipes posted on the Ancient Harvest website. They have all already been repeated at least once, either for ourselves or gifted. Hope some of the work for you!
Quinoa Salad with Spinach and Roasted Strawberries : You don’t need to roast strawberries to marvel at their sweet deliciousness, but something about the roasting, along with nutty quinoa, adds an elevated uniqueness to a simple, reliable standby.
Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp with Ancient Grain Topping: This is SO easy, and so pure it could be breakfast. You can use honey, coconut sugar, or nothing in the fruit. The topping was simply Ancient Harvest Maple grains hot cereal with a little almond meal, OJ and olive oil, but you could sub in traditional and add a pinch of cinnamon and some sweetener if you wanted. Any fruit combo goes, and it’s highly toddler approved. We’ve enjoyed it with 1 packet of the maple grains and 2 of the plain/unsweetened as well.
Spring Vegetable Quinoa Soup with Lemon Basil Pesto: I LOVE the way the pesto makes these spring flavors pop. This soup can be loaded up with vegetables but still feel like, yet satisfying.
Kale, Asparagus and Leek Quiche with Quinoa Crust: Successful gluten free crusts excite me, and not much is more forgiving than quiche, especially one stacked with green.
Red Lentil Rotelle with Lemony Ricotta, Peas and Tomatoes: Quick and easy, versatile and delicious…especially love the vegan variation with cashew cream.
Spring Quinoa and Cauliflower Tabbouleh: In all honesty, I’m not really a huge fan of cauliflower rice. I’d usually rather just eschew the rice and come up with another option. But in this clean, minty dish, the crispness of the cauliflower rice combined with the quinoa really works. It’s not mimicking bulgar…more like standing its own ground as an alternative.
