I feel like a proud parent. The tasty, healthy, convenient Flaked Quinoa & Edadame Cake is now available for purchase in the Microsoft City Center cafeteria. Chalk one up for the home team!
A few months ago, I got in touch with the team managing food and dining at Microsoft to bring in more healthy options. The team has been extremely open and responsive, and I’m excited to share that they are launching 4 newly-created, healthy grab ‘n’ go items as a result of this process! The goal here is to give people convenient, healthy alternatives to a slice of pizza, which until now has been the go-to item for many in a time crunch. Here are some pics and blurbs.
Flaked Quinoa and Edamame Cake: specked with scallions, carrot, peanuts seasoned with Sriracha, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and garlic on bed of crisp julienned nappa, carrot, scallion, cilantro, red bell, red radish disks and spinach finished with hoisin drizzle garnished with cilantro, peanut, julienned red radish, red bell w/ lemon and sesame oil vinaigrette
I got a new bowl! So I decided to test it out by making a grain bowl. Grain bowls are nice because the grain is warm. If you also leave the other ingredients out for a bit and let them come to room temperature, you’ll get a warm, satisfying meal that hasn’t had a bunch of the nutrients zapped out by cooking. Here’s what it’s in it…
