But what to make with it? I went with roasted vegetables and quinoa. I roasted red peppers, red onion, tomatoes and sweet potatoes. I roasted them in canola oil and sprinkled smoked paprika and salt over the top, when they were nearly done I crushed some garlic and mixed that in too. Once it was all cooked I added the cooked quinoa and lots and lots of fresh parsley.
this is it catching the sun...
ate it with brocolli cooked with sesame oil, sesame seeds and soy sauce
and the chick pea dip from yesterday.
What else could you make?
looking online it mainly seems that people make salads out of quinoa... but over on the awesome http://www.101cookbooks.com/ (again) you could make....
quinoa cloud cookies!
quinoa with tempeh and mushrooms
big bowl of quinoa with potatoes, nuts, asparagus and lots of other good things.
really, go look at Heidi's website... so much good stuff.
day off today... am just looking on the internet and drinking coffee (have eaten my cereal and blueberries with almond milk - be impressed - I am, as a rule, not a cereal eater) and will be going for a swim as soon as my costume dries... (damp swimming costumes just take me back to childhood and swimming club - maybe I should just buy a second swimming costume).
the sun is still out today! am going to meet a friend later for coffee in the park and maybe a bit of yoga this evening.
