There are some new participants in the South Arm Women Community Kitchen. So, Michelle prepared a menu of some old and some new recipes.
We made Garlic Croutons for the No Guilt Caesar Salad which I had blogged about here. This recipe is a great way to use leftover bread. The croutons are also great with soup.
Michelle shared with us the nutritional facts about Parmesan cheese which is one of the ingredients for the No Guilt Caesar Salad Dressing.
- 5 slices of bread, cubed
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
|Combine minced garlic with olive oil.|
|Toss bread cubes with garlic oil and salt.|
|Spread out on a baking sheet and bake in the oven at 350F degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, or until evenly browned and crisp on the outside.|
We served the No Guilt Caesar Salad with Smothered Chicken in Quinoa which I had blogged about here.
A new participant brought up the question of bitterness from quinoa.
Tips to reduce the hint of bitterness of quinoa:
