Peppery arugula with sweet honey and fresh lime…one of my new favorites for sure 🙂

Chef Tip

If boiling water is not possible, use the hottest water possible and bake for an additional 4 minutes or, until all the liquid is absorbed.

Trend Note

You can menu this as low carbon footprint, local and sustainable because the quinoa is domestic rather than imported.
