With a few more foods eliminated this week as part of the Lyme treatment protocol, Layla and I had to get creative πŸ™‚ Here is a quick recipe that will be great for those summer events!

Ingredients:

-White quinoa

-Carrots (I prefer the rainbow baby carrots)

-Cucumber

-Mint

-Feta cheese

-Capers

-Black olives

*feel free to add any other desired vegetables.

Directions:

  1. Β Cook quinoa (add two cups of water to every one cup of quinoa. Bring to a boil. Turn down heat and simmer until water has evaporated).
  2. Place quinoa in a bowl and allow to cool.
  3. Cut vegetables, olives and mint.
  4. Add vegetables, capers, olives and feta to the quinoa.
  5. Season with caper juice, salt and pepper. (you could also use lemon or balsamic vinegar…but they are on my eliminated list πŸ™‚ )
  6. Mix everything together and enjoy!
