These little kale-packed quinoa bites got here with me to Tokyo. I wedged eight of them right into a structured container, tucked that into my purse, and onto the flight we went. I do know a few of you wish to know what I carry to eat on flights, and 4 hours from SFO, I used to be wishing I would introduced extra. My journey pockets had been additionally lined with kishus (holding regular as my favourite winter citrus), a buttery, ripe avocado, and a bar of darkish chocolate. The quinoa bites had been practically excellent for journey, partially as a result of you are able to do a lot of the prep forward of time. This is how.
Every week earlier than my flight I made a batch, formed them, froze them, and the morning of my flight baked eight – you might additionally pan-fry them, for those who do not need to warmth the oven. The remainder had been dwelling awaiting my return.
A part of the attraction right here is the inherent flexibility of quinoa bites. Be happy to mess around with the quinoa base. I went with kale, edamame, feta, as a result of they had been readily available, tasty, and wanted for use up. However there are a thousand different mixtures to discover. You possibly can do chopped broccoli with goat cheese, or child fava beans, and chopped asparagus with lemon zest as we head into spring. Or, add an assertive spice mix or curry powder, chopped garbanzos, and inexperienced peas.
I had an excellent little journey. Not too lengthy, not too brief, and jam-packed. Photos & and up to date Tokyo map to come back quickly! We discovered just a few particular new objects to share right here, and I am hoping they will not take too lengthy to reach. xo -h
