Who tuned into my Snapchat (@gerihirsch) for the preparation of our first Seder in collaboration with Gaby?! For those that missed it, we made beautiful branzino, an arugula cucumber salad with avocado and balsamic vinaigrette, roasted baby potatoes, coconut pavlovas with mixed berries and a delicious roasted carrot and zucchini quinoa salad which was a HUGE hit! We served the spring quinoa salad warm but it’s equally as delicious at room temperature. Here’s how to make it yourself:

It’s really hard to stay hydrated throughout the day (especially at Coachella!) – with this tonic, you get about 3x more hydration than a single glass of water.
