Superfoods at Every Meal sneak peek + giveaway

Eeeeeeeeeeeeek! I'm bursting with excitement because I have literally been waiting for this moment for an entire year. My new cookbook, Superfoods at Every Meal, is officially for sale AND SHIPPING (all the info is below!!). I hope you love the premise and recipes as much as I do.  Most people can list a few superfoods they know they should be eating, but not everyone knows how to use and incorporate these foods into their daily diet. My book makes it simple. Just ten nourishing superfoods you already know and love -- quinoa, kale, chickpeas, sweet potatoes, blueberries, eggs, honey, coconut oil, Greek yogurt, and walnuts -- featured in delicious, everyday meals. 

With each recipe featuring at least two (and oftentimes four or five) of these ten superfoods, you'll find it simple to serve your family healthy wholesome meals at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Sneak Peek + Giveaway:

Today I'm giving you a sneak peek inside the book, one of the recipes, plus the best part... there's a giveaway! TWO lucky readers will win a signed copy of my cookbook PLUS an Ancient Harvest prize pack including 3 boxes of organic quinoa (one in each variety: red, traditional, and tri-color), 2 culinary ancient grains, and 2 hot cereals.

Quinoa, Corn, & Black Bean Quesadillas

Description

Quinoa, Corn, & Black Bean Quesadillas // from the Superfoods at Every Meal Cookbook ---- by Nosh and Nourish

Ingredients

1 tablespoon
Coconut Oil
1⁄4  
Onion (diced)
1 cup
Cooked Ancient Harvest Quinoa
1 cup
organic sweet corn kernels (I like Cascadian Farm's frozen corn kernels)
1 cup
Black Beans (rinsed and drained)
1 tablespoon
green chile salsa (or your favorite salsa)
   
Juice of 1/2 a lime
1⁄2 teaspoon
Ground Cumin
8  
Small Flour Tortillas (each buttered on one side)
2 cups
shredded Cheddar or Jack cheese
3⁄4 cups
Plain greek yogurt (for sauce)
   
Juice of 1/2 a lime (for sauce)

Notes

There is something so comforting about the melted cheesy goodness of a quesadilla. The quinoa and black beans add both protein and substance to this simple meal. And once you taste the amazing yogurt sauce, you will want to dip everything in it and then lick the bowl clean!

Instructions

To make the quesadillas: In a large skillet, melt the coconut oil. Add the onion and sauté for approximately 5 minutes, until the onion is softened and lightly browned. Add the quinoa, corn, black beans, salsa, lime juice, and cumin. Stir to combine. Sauté over medium heat for approximately 5 minutes, or until lightly browned and heated through. Remove from the heat.
For each quesadilla, place a large handful of cheese and a generous scoop of the quinoa-corn mixture on a tortilla, then top with another tortilla. Carefully transfer to a skillet set over medium heat (or assemble directly in the pan) and cook (on both buttered sides) until the tortilla is golden brown and the cheese is melted, 3 or 4 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining tortillas. Slice into triangles.
To make the sauce: In a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients (Greek yogurt and lime juice). Serve alongside the quesadillas for dipping.

Yields 4 Quesadillas
