Inspired by Anita Nair’s book – the Alphabet Soup for Lovers 👉Good reads for the monsoon 2020 #1 🦋 we held an edible alphabet game in our family WhatsApp group. Beginning from the first of the month till the twenty sixth, the participants had to post a picture of a homemade dish, beginning with the day’s alphabet; first day, a dish with A, on the second, a dish with B and so on.
We were on a roll, every day saw new dishes. It was fun and entertaining. But then it dawned on me that we were fast approaching the letter Q and I need a dish. All I could think of was Quinoa and I had never cooked with Quinoa before. The show must go on and so I ordered a packet of Quinoa via the online grocery app. I cooked it following the instructions on the packet and decide to make a very basic and easy Quinoa salad👇
The cooked Quinoa tasted like cooked broken wheat and the salad turned out pretty colourful with avocado🥑, cucumber 🥒, finely chopped carrot 🥕, chopped coriander leaves, tomatoes 🍅 with drizzle of olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Voila, Q for Quinoa salad, my dish for the day.
My family was more adventurous, they didn’t find the letter Q a challenge at all and it’s not even Quinoa. Here’s the feast they put up👇
It was awesome, all the ladies rose to the challenge and the variety was incredible ! My aunt made the Queensbury Tart and Quail Egg curry. The rest are my cousin’s contributions – Quail roast, Quesadilla, Quiche and there was also the Queen of Pudding 😋.
Q for Queens 👑
Till next post, take care !!
