Adrenal friendly recipes include quinoa tabouleh and roasted beet salad. These are easy and simple to make, and can be eaten as snacks or sides for lunch or dinner.
To make quinoa tabouleh, boil 2 cups water, and stir in 1 cup dry quinoa. Reduce heat, and let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until all water is absorbed. Transfer the quinoa to a bowl, and fluff with a fork. Let cool.
Once cool, add in 1/2 cup finely chopped parsley, 1/4 cup chopped coriander, 1/4 cup chopped mint leaves, 2 medium diced tomatoes, 4 tablespoons olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly.
To make a roasted beet salad, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut 2 to 3 medium-sized beets into cubes, and rub with olive oil. Place them on a baking sheet, and bake for 20 minutes.
Roast 1 red pepper and 1 tablespoon sesame seeds on the stove. Seed and cut the roasted red pepper into 1/2 inch strips. Place beets, red pepper, 3 cloves peeled and sliced garlic, 1 large diced tomato, 1 finely sliced red onion and 1 small block of cubed feta cheese into a bowl, and mix. Add sesame seeds, and mix again.
