Quinoa is extremely versatile and super easy to make. I especially love having some warm quinoa in the fall and winter since it tends to have that hearty feel to it. Here are some easy ways to add some delicious quinoa to any of your favorite meals. I used tricolor quinoa however feel free to make it your own.
These are great veggie burgers and make a great meal prep meal. You can also skip the lettuce wraps and go for some buns or add any of your typical burger toppings. I personally love adding avocado and tomato slices to mine. Some nice grilled corn also make a great side.
These falafels are great if you are looking for something to make but don’t have a lot of time to make it. Even the meat eaters in the family will go for seconds with this deliciously simple dish. Instead of using traditional pitas, you can use lettuce or cabbage as your wrap, as I have, for a gluten-free option. Add in your favorite vegetables to give it more health benefits and taste. I decided to go for some caramelized onions, sautéed asparagus, cucumber, beets, and bell pepper.
This soup is absolutely delicious for a light, warm dish for the cooler weather; and makes plenty for more to have later in the week. It is also so simple and easy to make. You could add some vegetable broth instead of water to make it a bit thicker and heavier, but I loved the lightness of the soup as it was. I also cut up some bread to dip in to the soup which of course is always amazing.
This is a delicious cookie for the fall season to crunch that pumpkin craving. Even with the amount of almond butter, you don’t taste the almond butter that much. If you find that they are too soft, simply put them back into the oven for about 5-8 minutes longer or until you have your desired texture.
