Science aside, and with only folklore and my Gong Gong’s beliefs in the good fortunes of the famed fruits, I’m eating lots and lots of oranges to cure an annoying cough.
A warm quinoa salad with a simple orange vinaigrette with some Thai basil leaves was surprisingly soothing. It was sweet, tangy and fresh.
For the vinaigrette, combine orange juice, orange zest, olive oil, some diced onions and salt and pepper. Pour on top of a bowl of warm quinoa with fresh orange slices and chopped almonds.
