Goodies Galore

Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Pot luck contribution. (hope it doesn’t suck.)

Okay, so perhaps I’m a little biased when it comes to my cooking. I happen to love my concoctions and don’t mind at all that most of it looks like dog food or worse. I think tonight’s dish is something to brag about though.

Challenge: create something that’s vegan and enticing to both men and women. Done and done. I hope.

Mediterranean Quinoa (Super creative name.)

1 cup dry quinoa

2 cups packed spinach

1 can artichoke hearts

1 onion

1/3 cup (that’s a guess) oil packed sun-dried tomatoes

1/2 jar roasted peppers

Salt and pepper to taste

Balsamic vinegar to taste

Add one cup quinoa to two cups water. Bring to boil then simmer for 15 minutes.

While that’s cooking, add diced onion and sun-dried tomatoes in a hot skillet. Do not drain the oil. Cook until the onions are to your liking.

Add roasted peppers, artichoke hearts, spinach, salt and pepper to onions/tomato mix. Heat through until spinach is wilted.

Add quinoa to the mix.

Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.

Bam! Take that suckers. I actually haven’t tasted it yet so we’ll let the boys be the judge. I brought backup in case they hate it.  Beer and hummus. Do with it what you will.

We all know who the wine is for.

Off to the party!
