Recipe #42: Quinoa Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Stuffing vegetables is such a great meal idea. You can stuff potatoes, peppers, zucchini, tomatoes and onions. So there are lots of choices for the vessel and even more for the filling. You can use ground meat, cheeses, more veggies, grains, rice. You can even mix and match items. If you would like some inspiration,…

Salmon w/ Roasted Vegetables & Quinoa

I didn’t think I’d be able to squeeze in another non challenge post before the end of the month, but I guess I was wrong. I just wanted to make a post about my dinner last night because it was super delicious. I also feel like I do not share enough “full meals” on my…

Mish-Mash Leftover Bowl

To me, a mish mash is just a mixture of several different things. That’s exactly what this meal was. I had lots of leftovers and sort of threw them together to create a new meal. I wasn’t even sure if this was worth posting but then I told myself, why not. Most people have leftovers…

Recipe #99: Tex-Mex Quinoa Salad

Here I am at the final salad recipe of this book and I can say that every single salad was delicious. They were all so fresh and flavourful and really just hit the spot every time. I’m happy this was my last one because I really like mexican/tex-mex flavours and it has avocado which I…

Recipe #79: Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Quinoa

If you eat oatmeal all the time, you’d probably get bored of it pretty fast. I never thought of eating quinoa for breakfast but it was a great alternative and I really enjoyed it. This was a good 10 minute breakfast if you’re in a rush in the morning (cook the quinoa the night before…

Recipe #74: Sweet Potato Quinoa Cakes

I have made something similar to these before and I liked them very much. It’s a nice mixture of quinoa, sweet potato, black beans and all the spices. They tasted delicious and I would eat the patty mixture in a burrito or on a salad. The one issue I had before and I had again…

Recipe #71: Broccoli & Cheddar Quinoa Bites

Quinoa is becoming one of my favourite foods and I loved it in these bites. I mean, you can’t really go wrong when you mix it with cheese and broccoli. They are a perfect little snack or a lunch with a salad (which is what I did). The only change I made to the recipe…

Quinoa with Spinach and Almonds

This is a very spontaneous post. I made my lunch – by throwing things into a pot – and it turned out pretty well so I decided to share it here. I had leftover cooked plain quinoa in the fridge and wanted to make it more exciting. So I put about 2 cups of spinach…

Recipe #60: California Quinoa Salad

I wish I was in california right now.. or anywhere hot really. But where I live, it was 10 degrees celcius today which is unusually high for this time of year. You take what you can get, I guess. Anyways, this was a quinoa salad with so many yummy ingredients. It was so fresh and…

Recipe #47: Beef & Quinoa Meatloaf

Meatloaf is such a classic dish, but I feel like people either love it or hate it. I would probably never order it at a restaurant but I enjoy a good homemade meatloaf.. like this one! I have no complaints about this recipe and my family loved it (theirclean plates after dinner told me so…
