Rainbow Salad with Two Pots of Gold

I've posted a picture of the meal in the team photos, the link is under the huddle button.

1 Homemade Food processor Tomato Soup (2 tomatoes, 1/4 c. onion,1/3 c. almond silk) Heat in microwave and season with black pepper and a dash of salt (or celery)

2. Gold Doubloon Pita:
Spread a Joseph's Flax/oat/wheat Pita with roasted garlic. Tear an ounce of Jarlsberg cheese and place on top, pizza style. Bake in 375 degree oven until melted, puffy, toasty, 6 - 10 minutes. Sprinkle with smoked paprika.

3. Rainbow Salad:
In a large bowl mix 1 cup baby spinach and 1 cup shredded red leaf lettuce or romaine. Create a "sun" of sliced roasted carrots. Around the carrots, arrange sections from 2 small cuties, 1/3 c. sliced red grapes, and 1/3 cup sliced strawberries. Slice a purple onion into rainbow shaped slices. Sprinkle 1/2 ounce (14 g) sliced almonds on top. I used 2 T. Colavita Basalmic Vinegar for my dressing.

This was a delicious, pretty, and very filling meal. The Gold Doubloon Pita went well with the soup and the salad, but I liked it best with the strong flavors of the salad. Next time, I'd use more roasted garlic. I used about 3 cloves this time.

I think I'd choose Gouda if I were to want to eat the Gold Doubloon with the tomato soup again.

Yes, I did actually think about adding that, but didn't. Don't see why you couldn't tho. :)

Also got your SparkMail request, added in the AA ingredients. :)

What a sunny breakfast treat. I'd feel lucky to find that in my bowl in the morning!!

I'm wanting to sprinkle a cloud of shredded, unsweetened coconut on top.

OK, red, purple, green, orange, and lemon gold. :) My rainbow with the gold...

11 Anti-Angiogenic ingredients: dark meat chicken or turkey, parsley, onions, lemon, olive oil, honey, black pepper, craisins, broccoli, orange, walnuts


The flavors meld even better after overnight. For those who might want to add a bit of meat to make a total meal (for a DH emoticon ) you could add some dark chicken or turkey meat for an AA addition.

I didn't have any dried apricots, but those would also be very good in this.

Quinoa and Parsley Salad

Ingredients
2 cups water
1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
1/2 cup brown rice
3/4 cup fresh parsley leaves
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
1/2 cup finely diced onions
3.5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

I added 1/2 c. each of craisins and raisins, some broccoli, an orange (cut each slice in half), and walnuts. I also grated the lemon and orange peels and added them into the dressing. It's still a bit drier than I like so next time I would add maybe 1/4c. orange juice. Made a yummy breakfast snack.

Top with sunflower seeds when served to keep their crunch.

Preparation

1. Bring water and quinoa to a boil in a medium saucepan. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Spoon into a bowl; fluff with a fork. Add parsley, celery, onions, and apricots.
2. Whisk lemon juice, olive oil, honey, salt, and black pepper. Add to quinoa mixture, and toss well. Top with seeds.

I don't care. Just give credit to whoever. I just want team members to have fun, get to know what is on the list, and find tasty ways to include more AA foods in menus and still be able to lose weight. And be healthy.

I'll hush while I'm behind!!

Does this have to be our own creation? Or can it be a recipe we've found?

I sure you are dying to know what the challenge is this month. I'm sticking with the idea of getting familiar with the anti-angiogenic food list. So the challenge for March is to create a dish inspired by the rainbow that leads to a pot of gold. You must include at least 3 different rainbow colors and of course something for the gold. Post your recipe here. It would be nice to have a picture posted in our photo gallery, but that's not a requirement for the challenge.

I bet you thought it would be a green salad?? Nope. emoticon

The full anti-angiogenic food list can be found at:
www.eattodefeat.org/foodlist

Let me know via spark mail if you would like to receive a Word version or .pdf.
I also have a grocery list chart you might like.
