Scampi--it's not just for shrimp anymore!

It's been a long week. It started out great with a party at my house to celebrate the 4th birthday of my (mostly) precious son, but began to denigrate into a week home from school due to illness that got passed along to me. Ugh. I'm tired of being home bound. Cooking has been drudgery, too.

So tonight, in-between coughing fits, I threw together a 15 minute meal that was delicious and super simple. It consisted of broccoli, carrots, quinoa, sunflower seeds, and a super magical secret ingredient--Wildtree Scampi Blend with Roasted Garlic Grapeseed Oil.

I started representing simple, healthy, and natural Wildtree products last July, but have not taken the time to devote to promoting them at the level they deserve. Not sure why, really, because I use them in my own kitchen, especially the Grapeseed Oils. So I guess this is sort of a debut of two of my favorite products from the line.

Anyway, tonight was one of those wonderful Wildtree nights where I got a delicious, nutritious dinner on the table super fast. Here's what I did:
  1. Cover bottom of cold skillet with Roasted Garlic Grapeseed Oil and 2-3 teaspoons of Scampi Blend.
  2. Turn heat to medium/medium-low and stir to blend.
  3. Add chopped carrots (I would have put some onion in first, but I didn't have any) and saute a few minutes stirring to coat the carrots.
  4. Add chopped broccoli. Stir to coat and cook for a few minutes until broccoli is bright green.
  5. Add cooked quinoa (or other whole grain--whatever amount on hand) and stir to warm and coat with seasoning.
  6. Add sunflower seeds (or sesame or pumpkin) and you're done!
