Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Recipe of the Week

Quinoa with Peas and Onions

Sunday, February 13, 2011

 1 C quinoa, rinsed

2 C water

½ C chopped onion 1 T olive oil

1 ½ C frozen peas

½ t salt

¼ t pepper

2 T chopped, toasted walnuts


Bring the quinoa and water to a boil, cover, reduce to a simmer and cook 15 minutes or until the water is absorbed.  Remove from heat.

Saute the onions in the oil until tender.  Turn off the heat, add the remaining ingredients to the skillet so that the peas warm up.  When the quinoa is done, dump it into the skillet, stir well and serve.
