And I had a few requests for the recipe.

So I ran through my brain to remember what I did. So here it is for you, in seven steps.

WP_003350

Hummus thing:
1 avocado
2 cans of chickpeas
6 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 bag of spinach, steamed
2 jalapenos (seeds in for spicy, which is best!)
1/2 cup plain soy yogurt
1 onion
Pinch sea salt

Place onion and jalapeno in skillet and heat until onion is golden. Throw in food processor with everything else. Obliterate the chunks. Yeah! take a few swipes with a carrot, flip out about how yummy it is, and throw it in the fridge. Use it on everything all week.

Quinoa thing:
1 cup quinoa
2 cups water
tons of garlic and onion powder and the juice of one lemon

Cook until the quinoa does its uncurling quinoa thing and moisture is gone. Throw it in the fridge overnight

To assemble:

Layer one- Lots of leafy greens!
Layer two- Quinoa
Layer three- 1/4- 1/2 cup canned pinto beans- rinsed
Layer four- 1/4 – 1/2 cup shelled edamame
Layer five- dollop the hummus thing on top- a lot or a little, it’s up to you.
Layer six- onions
Layer seven- juice from another lemon. Or two. Really, you can’t overlemon it. Unless you like, put in a cup, I guess.

Then let it sit in its tupperware until lunchtime and have at it, shaking, tossing and ruining all of those meticulous layers! MMMMMM
