Quinoa and Kansas City on GREAT TASTE this Week

Lisa M. Hamilton 

Ami Freeberg

 

So much to share this week!!

On the show this week I visit with writer Lisa M. Hamilton.  After a trip to the Andes in Bolivia and stateside research in Salt Lake City, Lisa wrote an insightful piece for Harper's about quinoa, and you can find it here.  There are a myriad of complexities surrounding this protein rich grain and we will explore some of them with Lisa in the first part of the show, plus discuss her article on open-source seed, "Linux for Lettuce."  You can follow Lisa on Twitter at-@HamiltonLisaM.


In the "Iowa Cooks" segment I chat with Ami Freeberg.  Ami is a native of Fairfield, who currently lives in Kansas City.  She works at making the Kansas City area more sustainable, not just as it relates to food, but also community.  In her role as Communications and Outreach Manager for Cultivate Kansas City, she is focused on developing and implementing numerous urban agricultural projects.  You can read more about Ami and Cultivate Kansas City here.

BEAT THE HEAT: Join Us LIVE at HY-VEE for SUPER SUMMER SALADS Wed 7pm

These sizzling summer Lentil Saladdays don't lend themselves to spending long periods of time over a hot stove.  A simple, light, tasty, and nutritious dish is the right formula to shoot for.  We have four combos that hit the right notes, but you can judge for yourself at Hy-Vee on Wednesday night from 7:00-8:00 pm.

Great Taste co-host Kathy DuBois loves salads.  She enjoys the challenge of making a salad the centerpiece of a meal.  Using a grain as the salad's focus and adding lots of flavors with citrus, parsley, olive oil, and other super fresh ingredients, she can satisfy your hunger without adding any unwanted calories.  I am a big fan of the two salads she's going to make on the show, one featuring french lentils and the other quinoa.
