Cooking de Janicita 🥗 “The Golden Asian” Quinoa Salad

For this week, I decided on a “fresh and light” theme since I had over indulged during CNY. Inspired by the small golden oranges or “kumquat” gotten from my godson’s Granny, I decided to make a salad with it. The interesting thing about this type of orange is that the skin can be eaten too, tasting both tarty and bitter. | At the same time, my new fave organic urban farmer @w.w.edibles delivered to me this lovely bunch of local veggies and flowers today. | Finally, I decided to make a warm quinoa salad. First, I sautéed small oyster mushrooms with garlic+olive oil+salt+pepper+grape vinegar together with the quinoa. Then I made a salad out of mostly asian veggies – kumquat+
wingbean+watercress (both veggies usually eaten cooked in asian cooking but taste great raw too)+
carrots+red cherry tomatoes+white sesame+toasted sunflower seeds in a japanese sesame dressing | Add a dash of lemon juice to the whole dish and nuts if you wish. I added toasted cashews for a crunchier bite. | The entire dish had a great blend of flavours, colours and textures! |

Cooking de Janicita 🥗 Garlic Buttered Rigatoni with zucchini+moringa flower

Garlic Buttered Rigatoni with zucchini+moringa flower TOPPED with fresh moringa flower+leaves and a
Mandarin Orange Salad |
So listening to my body, I wanted a tarty salad with some carbs so being inspired by CNY+Friend+my fresh edible plants, I made these 2 dishes. | For the salad, I used spinach for the greens, my home made papaya+passion fruit jam as dressing with olive oil+salt+pepper and added sunflower seeds | And the sautéed moringa flowers really tasted pretty good in the pasta. Overall a very balanced meal! |

Cooking de Janicita 🥗 “Coco-cado” Smoothie

“Coco-cado” Smoothie | Since I have been eating a lot during CNY, today I decided to make a smoothie, inspired by the edible flowers and leaves I bought yday. | Ingredients : avocado+coconut milk+figs+spinach(“Okinawa” purple/“Longevity”)+moringa leaves+blue pea flowers+turmeric powder+Chia seeds+sunflower seeds | Moringa I first discovered it as a powder together with maca in Mexico. I really like the leaves though which are high in vit c and antioxidants. Very versatile uses indeed ! | Finally I decided to garnish the smoothie with flowers yellow(“ixora”)+purple(“malabar gooseberry”) | Added a pinch of salt too which is “my thing”. I would try adding more sunflower seeds the next time too cos I really like the nutty taste. You can also play around the proportions according to your tastebuds! |~

Special thanks to @w.w.edibles for the very fresh edible flowers and leaves!

Cooking de Janicita 🥗 Spaghetti in Pesto TOPPED with fresh spinach

Spaghetti in Pesto TOPPED with fresh spinach(purple  Okinawa+Longevity)+toasted sunflower seeds |
I had left over of basil and other greens from the lovely stash bought from organic urban farmer @w.w.edibles and was wondering what else I could make. In the end I decided on a pesto sauce which I’ve not made before. | Pesto is really simple and just need to blend everything together. In my recipe I used basil+moringa leaves+olive oil+almonds+sunflower seeds+parmesan+salt+pepper+lime juice(I had no lemon so used lime and it turned out alright!). Add some water +olive oil to adjust texture. |

Cooking de Janicita 🥗 Avocado Carbonara TOPPED with toasted walnuts

Avocado Carbonara TOPPED with toasted walnuts+lemon zest+parmesan cheese | So I’ve been wanting to try this recipe since learning about it from my Italian Friend Filippo @scurtif in Bucharest. | Finally I had the blender to make the “carbonara” sauce – avocado+egg+olive oil+fresh garlic+lemon juice+salt+pepper | For this sauce suggest to include a herb like basil or rosemary.

It would taste better not overly creamy. Only attempt this dish if you are a big avocado fan and love creamy sauces. I probably would try in future with some fresh vegetable toppings.
