I've always had a thing for Mexican food. I especially love that tangy and peppery taste lingering in my mouth, hmmmmm. Plus adding that twist of fresh lime juice to the dish just brings out the freshness of each ingredient completely. This dish is not wholly Mexican nor Asian but it is a bit of both combined. I was inspired by this blog called Lush Loves. Marco and my two green friends had the first try for this new experiment the other night. They thought it was good (out of their politeness). As for me, I thought it was a little complicated. I couldn't figure if it was the miso that was too strong or the lime juice that made the quinoa seemed too light. An acquired taste is certainly needed to fully understand and appreciate such dish. And thank GOD, it was two vegetarians that I invited so I presume they would appreciate if it was not for the taste but at least for the nutritious facts.
Don't get me wrong, it was good. It's just that I think I'm starting to develop a peculiar taste for food especially my own food. Not sure if it's got anything to do with the self-expectation subconsciousness to improve my cooking for the better or is this the natural progress of how every food blogger would eventually become? Well, if you ever try this recipe, you can be the judge and tell me what you think. :)
