Whoo!! Guess who graduated university? ME! It hasn’t really sunk in that the exhausting yet exhilarating roller-coaster ride that is university is finally over. So much has happened since I defended my thesis last Friday, including moving in with my Omnivore Boyfriend (henceforth referred to as O.B.), and commencing a new job. But things have calmed down a bit so here is the first of what will hopefully be a delicious barrage of cooking photos this weekend.
Gluten-Free Chunky Pasta Salad (can anyone think of a better name?)
- 1 large cucumber (cut in half and diced thickly)
- 1 yellow pepper (sliced)
- 1 can black beans
- 2 cups bean sprouts
- 1 can black pre-sliced olives
- 1 pkg Eden Organic Flax Rice Spirals
- PC Honey Dijon salad dressing to taste
This made a huge amount of pasta salad… 7 or so servings. I’ve mentioned before that I have a habit of picking out random, awesome sounding pastas from the health food store or Chinatown, but the Flax Rice Spirals were… meh. They tasted kinda like whole wheat pasta which you can buy for a hell of a lot cheaper than $3.59/box.
