I am like a little kid when it comes to colorful food. Thankfully, as an adult, I enjoy natural foods. So when it comes to turning my food green, blue, red, purple, etc. I do not use food coloring. I use natural healthy foods like spinach, avocado, beets, berries, etc. like in these recipes:
Blueberry Beet Overnight Oats – It looks purple in the picture, but in person it was a bright pink color!
Green Monster Overnight Oats
Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Pancakes
Green Breakfast Pudding
Morning Start Green Juice
Grasshopper Pudding Parfait
I definitely want to try out more recipes to naturally turn my food fun colors!
Today I have a recipe that includes a rainbow of colors. I had heard of purple cauliflower but never tried it before. I love white cauliflower so I decided to give the purple cauliflower a try. To me, it tasted exactly like the white, so I enjoyed using this purple cauliflower to add even more color to my food. What better way to incorporate purple cauliflower than in a Rainbow Quinoa Salad!
This isn’t really a recipe. The idea for this recipe was adapted from here:
- red bell pepper
- orange carrots
- yellow corn
- green edamame
- purple cauliflower
- white quinoa
- Cook quinoa according to directions on package.
- Once quinoa is cooked, mix together all ingredients.
- Season however you would like with any dressing or seasonsings. (I personally used Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, a splash of lemon juice, Srirach, and some garlic powder.)
