Heather's Quinoa recipe

oh plate of quinoa love... left me speechless

quinoa, beet leaves, spinach, corn, tempeh, onion, tomato, dash o' salt, splash o' olive oil, loads of (dry) basil - use fresh if you have it! even better: make a pesto, like 101cookbooks tells ya ;)

my bfast's twin, but with yogurt, wheat berries, and unsweetened cocoa powder.

chocolate. oh, and some peanuts :)



  1. dang girl, you speedy! haha. the quinoa recipe looks lovely - i can only imagine it with pesto. such a good idea.
    hope you have a good day!!

  2. Ack! I love the drawings and sculptures you did with the kids. TOO cute. I'm also loving the looks of your dinner. For some odd reason, quinoa is one of those grains that I love to eat, but very rarely do. I have no idea why... It's like, I won't eat it for a month or so, randomly decide to cook some up for dinner one night, and then wonder why the heck I don't make it more often. Go figure...

  3. That stuff looks tasty!!! And my hummus usually doesn't come out so smooth either.

  4. Your breakfast bowls are always so delicious looking. I ran out of quinoa a few months ago and haven't replenished my stock yet but need to get on that asap!
