Festive & Nourishing


Food has satisfy all our senses to be truly nourishing. To me that is what healthy self-nourishment is all about!

Quinoa brings so much versatility to a meal. It can be mixed with so any different vegetables, – really any vegetable. Here it is with butternut squash, red cabbage and pomegranate.


  • 1 cup uncooked black quinoa
  • 1/2 head of cabbage (sauté or roast separately first)
  • 1 scooped out pomegranate
  • 2 cups of cubed butternut squash (sauté or roast separately first)

Serves 2-4


Cook the quinoa separately. Wash well first – 1 cup quinoa to 2 1/2 cups of water with a dash of sea-salt. Bring it to a boil and simmer for 20-25 min. until right before all the water is gone. Let it sit for 5 minutes before mixing.

Add chopped cabbage that you have either sautéed or roasted in the oven.

Add roasted or sautéed butternut squash and mix it all in a bowl with pomegranate seeds.

Serve it with greens or as a side dish to other foods.
