There are about 150 different kinds of Quinoa. Though the most common kinds you can buy everywhere are white, red and black. I am a big fan of quinoa (duh? I am peruvian) and I love them in every color and texture. The white quinoa is the fluffy one that is a bit closer in texture to couscous. The red and black are crunchier, so I find them better for a summer salad.
Quinoa has not only protein, but it is also a source of fiber and iron! For me is the complete package side dish and works perfectly to complement any salad. I made today a black quinoa salad with shrimps. But you can skip the "animal protein" and just eat the rest. This is one of my favorite summer recipes.
I am doing some major work in my kitchens wood. So I can't use much of it. The Sink, countertop, etc. And to add to it, it is summer in Berlin. Hot Hot Hot (when it isn't raining) And as a girl has to eat, I made this super easy pasta recipe with fresh avocados. I am having a bit of "camera problems" as well so please bare with it, at least just for this post ;)
I got some Nero di Sepia pasta (squid ink pasta) from a friend of mine (he got it at L'Epicerie), And normally I use it with a creamy sauce and prawns. But as this pasta is vegan, I decided to go vegan all the way.
