Thursday: A variation on a favorite
Raw tomato-cilantro sauce on quinoa.
We had thought of doing our usual raw pasta sauce (another good meal for a busy weeknight), but then realized we had no basil. Fail. Luckily, we found a bit of cilantro in the depths of our crowded produce drawers, and decided it could substitute well as the dominant herb in this dish. This was simple, but quinoa has a nice complex flavor, so it came out well - it's hard to go wrong with any tomato dish when you start with amazing tomatoes.
