Water Parsley Quinoa Salad

Water parsley Quinoa SaladIn the organic box, they often include water parsley, which I find a little bit hard to put into my usual dishes and it’s peppery so not an ideal addition to green smoothies.  So, I branched out and came up with a new creation.

From the organic box/regular supermarket:

Water parsley, zucchini, onion, garlic

From Iherb:

Quinoa, parsley, celery salt, veggie stock cube, fresh-ground pepper

Here’s how to do it:

Cook the quinoa according to the package directions.  I added a veggie stock cube.  Then fry up your veggies in a bit of oil, adding the greens and spices right at the end.  Mix the veggies up with the quinoa and enjoy!  It’s equally good hot or cold.

Water Parsley Side-Dish

In the organic CSA box, they often send water parsley.  The problem is that most expats in Korea truly have no idea what to do with it.  How I usually eat it up is by making a really simple salad.Water Parsley Salad  Here’s how you do it:

Clean and chop up the water parsley.  I usually use some of the stems, but discard the really thick pieces.

Then, from the regular supermarket or Iherb, add:

Sesame oil, ground up red pepper, sesame oil, salt, brown rice vinegar, garlic.

You should add sesame seeds and green onions, but I didn’t have any.

Eat it with some rice!
