Tasty Tuesday - Quinoa Risotto with Zucchini and Salmon

Posted by Claudia Moser on 7:16 AM in , , ,

Ingredients for 2 people:
120 gr quinoa 
250 ml chicken broth
1 zucchini
1 white onion
2 small pieces of smoked salmon
75 gr parmesan
salt, pepper, olive oil
a bit of butter

How to:
Add a bit of olive oil in the pan, then the onions and let them glaze a bit followed by the small pieces of smoked salmon. Then add the quinoa and after that a very long process starts, by adding the chicken broth step by step in order to cook the grains. Almost at the end add the small pieces of zucchini and the parmesan. Before taking it off the heat add the butter et voila! Enjoy! We had it simple like this and add it in a flash. 

Some small comments in respect to quinoa - the grains contain essential amino acids like lysine and good quantities of calcium, phosphorus, and iron, so a good reason to add it on the menu!




my mouth is watering.

It sounds yummy.

Another lovely recipe. Thank you.

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
