Canna Quinoa

From Wolf – “Quinoa is extremely healthy and happens to taste pretty terrific. Usually found these days in salads, often quite delish, this time we are going to do quinoa “fried rice” style. For me it is a perfect way to use leftovers, and I love the texture of the quinoa after sautéing. Kind of crunchy. Just spend some time in the fridge and choose the things that have not passed their due date.  Recently some folks stopped by unexpectedly and I did a canna-quinoa fry with kale, shredded carrots and jalapenos. Not bad at all.”

“I medicated this last batch of canola oil with Obama Kush, one of my favorite strains, and presidents, and have been quite pleased with the things I have been cooking.  I made spicy vinaigrette with the oil and there was the slightest hint of weed, which was kind of a perfect compliment to the earthy salad of potatoes and mushrooms I drizzled with said vinaigrette.”

Canna Carrot Potato Soup

The cumin and the caraway seeds flavor this creamy soothing soup. It’s a perfect rainy night soup. Carrots and potatoes are such a great pair. “This soup also rocks with sweet potato. When I serve that variation, I add a dollop of sour cream.” – Laurie Wolf
