With an overwhelming number of recipes available on the internet, sometimes the best answer is to shut the laptop and simply cook. It doesn’t have to be fancy, tricky, or twenty ingredients long to taste good. Some of my absolute favorite meals require the least number of ingredients, freshest whole foods, and simplest preparations. This Saturday, I cooked one of these meals with my friend. To add to the simplicity of our feast – we cooked at his place which had only the bare minimum cooking essentials: salt, pepper, olive oil, and vinegar.
What did we cook?
Salt + Pepper Salmon, Asparagus, Quinoa, and Tomato Goat Cheese Arugula Salad
Bake the salmon, roast the asparagus, toast the quinoa, and dress the tomatoes, arugula, goat cheese with balsamic vinaigrette. Presto! Dinner is served.
