What a great way to have your kids eating salmon and quinoa, pronounced (“keen-wah”). If you haven't tried quinoa yet, here are a few reasons why you should incorporate it in most of our meals. Quinoa is naturally gluten-free and loaded vitamins ans minerals. It is one of only a few plant foods that are considered a complete protein and comprised of all pernine essential amino acids. Quinoa also has a high protein to carbohydrate ratio when compared to other grain products.
When preparing this dish you have 2 options, you can pan fry it or bake it. Both ways will be a hit for kids and adults! Enjoy!
This recipe is always a hit in our kids cooking classes. Our students not only learn the importance of sanitation when working whit raw meats but they have a blast threading them into the skewers. They're packed with flavor and satisfies even the pickiest eaters. We have served them with our homemade Naan Bread and Israeli Salad or by themselves as an appetizer. I can say that this recipe is definitely a keeper!
In honor of our Ecuadorian brothers and sisters, I have decided to share this simple but delicious recipe that can be served as a side dish with any baked or grilled fish recipe. It's a classic Ecuadorian side dish made with a tuber known as "Melloco", a potato variety similar to our fingerling potatoes that are known to contain high levels of protein, calcium, and carotene. You can use Fingerling Potatoes instead of the original "Melloco" since I'm pretty sure it must be difficult to find in South Florida. Chose this lean potato recipe instead of the regular french fries for less fat and don't forget to put your grain of rice (or Quinoa) in the aid of the people of Ecuador. Follow this CNN link and find out how you can help the people in Ecuador now!

Serve it today as a Soup and save some leftover to serve with brown rice or Naan Bread tomorrow! You can always throw a tablespoon or two of Coconut Milk and have a totally different flavored soup. This recipe can be vegan by using veggie stock instead of the chicken and can be topped with Cilantro, minced Chives or Yogurt. This is one of my teenage daughter's favorite Meatless Mondays
