Enjoy spring produce by making fresh salads or using herbs to spice up a routine dish like this recipe for tabbouleh. You can use fresh herbs in many ways to take a simple dish to the next level of flavor.
When preparing herbs, gently wash them under cold running water or let them sit in a bowl of cold water until the grit settles to the bottom of the bowl. After, pat dry with kitchen towels. Herbs can also be dried for later use all year round.
Quinoa is rich in protein and contains almost twice as much fiber as many other grains. Quinoa contains iron, lysine, magnesium, riboflavin (B2) and manganese. Tomatoes are the major dietary source of the antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. They are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, folate and vitamin K.
