Another festive salad with all the right elements – quinoa is tossed with fresh raw veggies and made even more wholesome with a lemon vinaigrette and chopped avocado. It’s the perfect end to any night. Enjoy!

Instead of oatmeal or dry cereal, try incorporating quinoa into your breakfast. Quinoa isn’t reserved for savory dishes. It’s high in protein and fiber and keeps you full throughout the morning and into the afternoon. This recipe is a foundation for your own variations. Nix the chocolate and add vanilla for a change and switch [...]
Hey guys! Head over to Greatist.com to check out the recipe for my latest contribution – Black Bean and Quinoa Burgers! These were delicious and I didn’t even realize until after I made them that I didn’t add any oil to the mix. Kinda awesome.
Have you ever made a flax egg? Sounds kind of strange, but many vegan recipes call for a flax egg to replace a real egg. I’ve never made one until very recently and it had always sounded weird and complicated to do, but it takes a mere minutes and the process comes in handy whenever [...]
This is a quick chop-chuck-’n-chew recipe that I make all the time, depending on what grain and vegetable leftovers I have. I chop the vegetables small, toss with cooked quinoa (or any grain for that matter) and fold in a simple lemon and olive oil dressing. It’s a fresh, light, and satisfying way to get [...]
A “Buddha Bowl” is essentially a kitchen sink salad. It includes whatever raw vegetables you have on hand—avocado and carrots are usual suspects—and a grain.

A recent find: Kale chips! The taste was a big “meh”. They had a soggy texture. I like my kale chips crispy. The spices gave the chips a smoked taste, which is unlike the kinds I’ve tried in the States. But I’d rather crunch through them, not chew. Maybe I’ll make my own soon. While [...]
There isn’t much pasta can’t fix–a cold day, a hungry belly and a long day at work. I recently saw this in my local health food store: The ingredients? 70% kamut, 30% quinoa. That’s it. I wanted the unique flavors of kamut and quinoa to come out, so I tried not to mask the taste [...]
I wish I was more skilled at naming the dishes I create, but the name is either insanely simple or 5 lines long, essentially summarizing all the ingredients that make said dish, well, said dish. Tonight I realized I had not had quinoa in ages, and with a few other vegetables hanging around the kitchen, [...]
