Shrimps and Pesto Quinoa ....Carrots, Zuchinni and Pesto Salad....and the Contest List!

Please review whether you are on the contest list......

These are two simple dishes.....Almost no recipe!

Probably, you understand that I love pesto. Every time I have fresh basil leaves, I end up making pesto.....

 Shrimps and Pesto Quinoa

1 cup of cooked quinoa (warm)
Colorful carrots (sliced)
Olive oil
Pesto Basil

In boiling water, cook the carrots for 1 minute only. Just to make them tender, but no fully cooked. Thus, you will add some texture to this dish.

Add salt and pepper to the shrimps, and cook them in olive oil.

Mix the cooked quinoa with pesto (at your taste), the carrots, and the cooked shrimps......ENJOY!!

Carrots, Zuchinni and Pesto Salad

Rainbow Carrots
Parmiggiano Cheese
Olive oil

With a potato peeler, slice the rainbow carrots and the zucchini.

In boiling water with, immerse the carrots for 1 minute only, take them out and put them in cold water with ice. Strain them. Thus, they will be tender and the color will be fixed.

I use the same water, but to avoid color mixing, I did this order: white carrots- yellow carrots-orange carrots-zucchini-purple carrots.

Mix them as they were pasta. Seasoned them with olive oil. Distribute some pesto on top. Add some parmiggiano cheese......Mix it...and ENJOY!! is delicious!!
