This recipe is so delicious, I need to share it. I can’t take credit for it, as I obtained it from Hansen Garbarino Vineyards outside Lodi, California. Hansen Garbarino Vineyards has been in the industry in California for over 150 years. Its focus is making wines that showcase the Lodi Appellation along with some Coastal Regions and a few very select vineyards in California such as Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles and Santa Maria.
Looking for a quick and easy summer recipe? Look no further than Visit Lodi’s recipe of the month – a quinoa and spinach stuffed tomato! When you pair this with the H-G Vineyards 2010 multi-award winning Chardonnay; it’s a little taste of heaven! Thank you to the folks at HG Vineyards for this month’s recipe.
8 medium ripe tomatoes
2 cups water
1 cup quinoa
2 teaspoons olive oil
6 cups fresh spinach
