Dinner! Yummsky

Posted in Nutrition by Meghan Pickrell on July 31, 2011

As an artist, Carlos has a creative flare for opening the fridge and preparing the most unexpected but delicious meal. Last night, with very little desire to leave our home, and nothing of particular interest in the fridge, Carlos prepared one of his creations. Using beets, carrots and cantalope from our Farm Fresh organic box, quinoa and brussels we had a healthy and unique meal full of a variety of flavors.

The sad part about Carlos’s meals is that he works on the fly. If I love something, I know it will rarely make a second appearance. So, I woke up this morning and decided to post about it, keeping our delicious but healthy organic fare alive! Maybe I can recreate it???

Here’s the gist: In a cast iron skillet roast the veggies (brussels, carrots and beets). Cook the quinoa in water. Chop the melon. Add arugula, and a tantalizing yogurt sauce consisting of garlic, yogurt, honey, and a touch of red pepper. Organize the veggies according to color and style and you will have an amazing meal. Good luck!

(BTW, “Yumsky” is a Melina word. I don’t think it’s German? but it definitely means delicious. Just in case you were wondering. Yumsky!)
