This was a lucky discovery. Tasty and amazingly good for you as well. Fenugreek greens can sometimes be found in an Indian food market and are often used in Ayurvedic cooking.
- 1 large avocado
- 2c quinoa (cooked)
- 1/2 c green olives stuffed with garlic
- 1/2 bunch fenugreek greens
- 1/2 bunch mint
- 1/2 lime’s juice
- 1-2T e.v. olive oil
- pinch of salt and pepper
This is great for using up leftover quinoa but other grains like rice, buckwheat, or bulgar could also be used. Dice the avocado, slice the olives, rough chop the fenugreek and mint. Toss together and add the lime juice, olive oil and season to taste.
Fenugreek has a very uniquely light maple syrup aroma/flavor which really brings out the mint and goes well with the quinoa and avocado. It also gets into your skin and you may notice that you are smelling like maple syrup for a few days after eating it. A nice bonus for your workmates if you have terrible B.O 🙂
