Quinoa Summer Treat from Tami D.-Yum:-)

Use Prewashed Quinoa- I find it very difficult to wash because it is so tiny.  There are kitchen tools that make it easy, but I don’t own them.


Quinoa, Garlic, Red onion- (I use whatever type of onion I have on hand),Feta cheese -(I use Parmesan or Mozzarella),Grape tomatoes(quartered), Cucumber(chunked), Fresh dill- (I often forget this)


2 TBL Lemon juice

1 TL Bragg- I purchase at Whole Foods it is a black liquid

2 TBL Apple Cider Vinegar


1. Cook the Quinoa according to the package, add 1 or 2 pressed garlic cloves while cooking

2. While Quinoa is cooking cut up vegetables

3. Mix ingredients together for the sauce in a small bowl with a lid.

4. Combine all the ingredients

5. Pour sauce over the top RIGHT before serving.

This dish can be served warm or cold.   If serving cold store the Quinoa with vegetables and cheese in the fridge separate from the sauce.

Parsley Salmon, by Annika Sorenstam

Fresh salmon and boiled potatoes is one of my favorite Swedish dishes. It is a traditional dish served at many upscale restaurants. This recipe is for a variation that is very simple to do, but is as elegant as any Swedish restaurant if done right.

Ingredients – 4 servings

2 lb salmon fillet, skinless, boneless (preferably middles)
1 -2 teaspoons salt
1 pinch freshly ground white pepper
2 cups chopped parsley
2 cups white wine
3 cups whipping cream

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place salmon fillet in a greased ovenproof dish. Add salt and pepper and sprinkle with parsley. Mix wine and cream in a separate bowl and pour over the salmon fillet. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes to an internal temperature of 135 degrees.

I like to serve mine with asparagus or potatoes, and of course fresh cut lemon.

Fruit Soup

Scoop balls from melons with a melon ball cutter. Use a honeydew or cantaloupe, or scoops of each. Cut up a banana, with a butter knife. Parents can cut up remaining fruits. Add the orange juice for the base of the soup into a blender. Add pieces of banana into blender and whirl on high for 30 seconds. Pour soup into 3 or four bowls. Add cut up fruit to each of the bowls, then top off with a scoop of frozen yogurt of sorbet.

Protein Power Balls

Peanut Butter

Protein Power Balls

Place first four ingredients in a large bowl and combine with large spoon and then, if possible, knead with hands until well mixed. Add last ingredient and incorporate into mixture, small portions at a time. A food processor works well for this also. It will break the crispy brown rice into finer pieces and distribute them more uniformly. Form into small, bite-sized balls. Store in an air-tight container or plastic bag – best in refrigerator. Can be frozen. Makes 15-20 balls. Can double or triple recipe for large groups, but if using processor, it is necessary to work in batches.

Great for after-school snacks.

Feel free to experiment with other crunchy additions such as ground flax seeds or toasted sesame seeds.
