Date Roasted Butternut Squash and Chickpeas
This is just an amazing dish! Great served as a side dish for a formal dinner party or just over some rice or quinoa as an awesome main dish any night of the week! A fun tip...if you have leftovers scoop them onto your salad for a perfect lunch tomorrow!
Red Quinoa and Edamame Budha Bowl
In this Budha Bowl, I use red quinoa – well... just because it’s so pretty! As well as protein packed edamame and of course avocado! Dig in...It’s good for you!
Apple Date Quinoa Porridge
This is a great alternative to the classic oatmeal – using superfood quinoa! It’s also super delicious and satisfying!
Miso Beet and Quinoa Budha Bowl
I’m really into Budha Bowls lately! A giant bowl of food that usually starts with some grains, lots of veggies and some form of protein. In this one I use yellow beets as well as the greens attached to them and lots of chickpeas in a miso dressing. For the grains here I chose to mix my quinoa with bulgur as the combo is just super fluffy and nutty!
Quinoa with Beans and Kale
A great mix of so many superfoods! This simple dish will keep you full of energy all day!
Herbed Quinoa with Chickpeas and Walnuts
A really nice refreshing quinoa salad! Full of fresh herbs this is a great salad for a potluck or to serve as a grain with any meal!
Quinoa Black Bean Taco Bowl
I love these huge “bowls” for dinner! This one is Mexican inspired with hearty quinoa and black beans on top of crisp lettuce, creamy avocado and all topped with a chipotle lime sour cream!
Quinoa Salad with Grilled Onions, Asparagus and Orange Segments
Quinoa is a super grain because it is one of the few foods that provides vegetarians with a complete protein. This salad is particularly nice because of the colour and texture contrasts. I find grilling the onions adds an extra element of flavour and the orange segments are really nice as they burst in your mouth!
