I will be giving a healthy cooking demo tomorrow at Anoka-Ramsey Community College, and wanted to share the two recipes we will be cooking up! Both fresh, delicious and nutritious.....

Cumin Raisin Quinoa (keen-wa)

1/4c golden raisins
1 small yellow onion, diced
olive oil
fresh cilantro for garnish

saute onions in oil until translucent
add cumin and stir to coat
add quinoa + raisins
add water/broth and bring to boil
reduce heat + let simmer 10-15 minutes or until water is absorbed (quinoa will have a translucent 'tail' when done)
stir in cilantro

Smokey Greens Wrap

Chipotle Mayo

1 chipotle + 1T adobo sauce from small can
