meatless monday — curried quinoa with milk & honey bread

now that's dinner

for the last couple of months i have been pairing my books i’m reading with themed appropriate music.  yes i am that much of a dork.  it started in knox when i was reading harry potter at a Scottish bar, aka my own little leaky cauldron.  then the hobbit was paired with the chieftains, a 17th century pirate book with mozart, a book about paris and john singer sargent to edith piaf and now a 19th century biography on the most influential woman in the middle east, gertrude bell paired with a pandora station of african/middle eastern music.

all i can say is this has made me crave curry, curry, lamb, curry, hummus,  and more curry.  for meatless monday i made some curried quinoa that had craisins and almonds in it and topped it with a couple of poached eggs.  along with some milk and honey bread, which is actually an ancient middle eastern dish. (don’t ask where i got it because there is a long food story behind that as well)  yum to the taste buds!

 

RECIPE:  milk & honey bread

4 oz feta cheese, crumbled

3 Tbspn honey

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup flour

olive oil

*mash honey, feta, & salt with a fork, gradually add in flour till a dough forms.  knead dough until smooth.  cover and leave dough at room temp for 20 minutes.  divide dough into 12 portions, roll each portion until 3 inches in diameter.  lightly oil pan with olive oil, over medium heat.  cook dough patties until golden brown, about 1 minute per side.
