Cream cheese
  1. Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Try and adjust the flavor adding lemon juice or salt.
Aubergines
  1. Wash the eggplants well, cut into large slices and put them in a large strainer. Sprinkle generously with salt and let the aubergines "sweat" to reduce their bitterness. Leave them for 30 minutes, at least and then rinse them with plenty of water. Dry the eggplants with kitchen towels and they are ready for cooking. This process should always be done before cooking.
  2. Heat a griddle pan or grill. Brush each aubergine slice with olive oil. Cook in batches for 3-4 minutes, turning once, until
  3. softened. When ready set aside, season with salt and pepper.
Tomato sauce
  1. Put a deep pan on a low heat. Sauté the chopped garlic with a little olive oil for 3-4 seconds.
  2. Add the passata sauce, lemon, honey, pepper and stir.
  3. Add salt, basil and lower the heat.
  4. Cook for about 15 minutes until sauce is thick.
Quinoa
  1. Place the quinoa in a fine-mesh strainer, rinse thoroughly with water and drain.
  2. Toast the quinoa in a small saucepan. Add olive oil stir for a minute, then add water and bring to a boil. Stir in the water the turmeric, onion powder, pepper and the salt. Bring to a rolling boil.
  3. Turn heat down to the lowest setting. Cover and cook for 15 minutes.
  4. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Remove the pot from heat and let stand for 5 more minutes, covered.
  5. Fluff the quinoa gently with a fork and place it into a big salad platter, let cool.
