So I guess you're wondering what was on the menu. First, Louisiana gumbo packed with fresh vegetables in a flavorful broth. Then a salad with quinoa, tomatoes and lentils that was to die for. Pumpkin muffins came on the side and the grand finale...chocolate mousse pie! It was so creamy, chocolatey, rich and decadent I hope she serves it again soon.
Since I didn't bring a notepad I tried to get all her suggestions saved in my head. I learned about Xanthan gum--a staple in gluten-free cooking. I haven't used it yet, but she suggested using with dressings, sauces and baking. Another tip that stuck well in my mind was to add curry seasoning to quinoa, mix with your choice of beans and Thai spices, then wrap in a tortilla for a protein packed lunch. Yum!
