So, it is your turn to host the girls night out and you have no idea what to serve. Chances are most of your pals want to eat healthy, but it doesn’t mean they’re happy to sacrifice flavor. The truth is that regardless of their expectations we by no means wish to disappoint! The very good news is that offering great food does not mean you have to invest several hours with the cooking. It is quite easy to create healthy, easy dishes that taste excellent! as an example, you can serve a great quinoa salad with a hummus recipe as a side dish. This is a simple menu that you can make ahead that is sure to please both meat eaters and vegetarians alike.
There are many different options for making a quinoa salad. One that is really like is a Greek quinoa salad. the first thing you will need to do is cook the quinoa. let it cool a bit and then combine it with chopped cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, chopped red pepper, kalamata olives, banana peppers and feta cheese. for the dressing, combined chopped fresh parsley, lemon juice, red wine vinegar and organic olive oil.
There are also many options when making hummus. Something to keep in mind is that for the best possible hummus you should always start with warm garbanzo beans. not only does this help your flavors combine but it also works to cut the acidity of the garlic. As far as what you can add, good options are roasted red peppers, sun dried tomatoes, or olives. if you have the time and desire, you can even make several different types of hummus for your friends to enjoy!

If you do not mind spicy foods, add an extra kick to the hummus by adding in some cayenne pepper. this actually benefits not only the flavor but also the health of your dish! cayenne pepper and other hot peppers actually work to help curb cravings. in a recent study it was shown that capsaicin, which is in peppers, works to keep you fuller and curb hunger. Researchers found that it was especially effective in the presence of green tea, so you may want to consider serving green tea as well!
