This week I am eating a lot of Crock Pot Quinoa Lentil Stew For a Crowd because I made enough for a crowd, but apparently I am the only one eating it. I am putting the rest in the freezer tonight.
In this version I used carrots, summer squash, celery, onions, a couple of chicken breasts and a potato. I forgot to throw in some cranberries and spinach at the end. I had planned to clean out all of my older produce with this stew.
Here are some of the interesting quinoa recipes I came across on the internet today.
These look like they would fill the house with a warm spicy aroma. I don’t have a waffle iron and really have never had the patience for waffles – I would much prefer to lay out eight pancakes on a griddle. Come to think of it, I don’t have one of those right now either. I will have to keep my eyes open at the spring yard sales because a griddle saves a lot of time when you’re cooking for a family.
While I admit the eggplant in this recipe would be a hard sell to a couple of my grown sons, this is a nice two serving recipe that I could prepare and woudn’t have to eat for the next week. With the béchamel browned on top, the photos of this vegetarian version of Moussaka will inspire you to drool along with all the commenters.
Wow, this looks like it would kick anyone’s notion of bland vegan eating right in the tonsils. I love that the pumpkin seeds are incorporated in the final dish.
Never toss your squash seeds. Think of what you pay for nuts and remember toasted squash seeds can be used in place of nuts in just about anything from yogurt to salad to savory soup.
There isn’t a recipe here, not even an endorsement of the recipe by the blogger, but I had never seen a purple cauliflower before and so I included the link in case you would like to see one too.
This looks beautiful. It reminds me of my Spinach and Cranberry Quinoa Salad. Pomegranates were marked down at my local supermarket yesterday, but I had no idea how to use them. This post explains how to whack a pom to release the seeds for eating so you can take advantage of the special if you see pomegranates on sale.
