Lime-Scented Quinoa, a riff on a Gourmet recipe for Lemon Scented Quinoa, available on Epicurious. Stew is 6 chicken breasts, butternut squash, zucchini, onion, baby carrots. Chop veggies and chicken, place in slow cooker. Season with equal amounts turmeric, brown mustard seed, fennel seed, dried cilantro, and red pepper flakes, 1/2 tsp each, ground in a mortar if you like. Add 2 tsp. salt to mortar for grinding, or sprinkle on chicken and veggies. Peel and chop 2 thumbs of ginger into coins, place into cooker with chicken and vegetables. Add 1/2 c. chicken stock to slow cooker, cook on high 4 hrs. Taste for salt, add 1 tbsp tomato paste and 5 chopped plum tomatoes to the slow cooker, stir, and re-cover for 20 minutes.

    Oooh, that sounds so good! Maybe I will give this a try. I find cooking a lot more tolerable when I am excited to try the things I’m cooking.
