The options are endless with these Vietnamese inspired Quinoa Veggie Spring Rolls. Add any fresh veggie, tofu or seafood you’d like and just roll it up. We made ours vegan, paleo and gluten free with a slight twist to the traditional spring roll…using cashew butter instead of peanut butter.

One of our employees (for lack of better word) discovered this incredibly simple heirloom family recipe at a dairy and hacienda in northern Ecuador. Quinoa is a primary crop for the indigenous peoples of the region, and this rich, flavorful soup shines due to the quality of its dairy products: Cream and milk hours out of the dairy, freshly churned butter, just-harvested eggs from pastured chickens, and whatever cheese is on hand. In the absence of your own dairy cow, buy the best quality ingredients you can afford, or cage-free eggs from your farmers market. The result is a soup that nourishes both the soul and body, thanks to quinoa’s remarkable nutritional benefits (which include all the essential amino acids).
