Here’s another example of using “formula cooking”. Tonight I was really in the mood for something *LIKE* potato salad. I didn’t have any potatoes but I wasn’t going to let a trivial problem like that stand in my way. I used the formula for potato salad and came up with a very tasty quinoa and vegetable salad that was exactly what I was craving.
Quinoa cooks just like rice and can be used easily as a healthier substitute for rice or couscous.
Quinoa is a common staple in South America- especially Peru. I then combined some flavors of Spain like olives and smoked paprika.
Unless you’re good with the pressure cooker, don’t even think about pulling a shoulder out of the fridge an hour before dinner time!
