I knew I want to make quinoa for lunch, because I know how much Jacob loves it!
I really like quinoa even better than brown rice! It has 7g of protein per serving, but it is still grain?!
I love this thing and it tastes so good too.
1 cup quinoa, 2 cups water. That’s all you need!
Bring water to boil, add quinoa, bring back to boil and reduce heat to medium and simmer for 12 minutes.
Remove from heat, let it sit for additional 15 minutes, and you done!
I bought veg sausage just in case if I can’t be smart about vegan cooking(also I didn’t want to make tofu all day either.). And sure it helped me out this lunch time!!
I took out all the vegetables I had in the refrigerator, which is onion, bell peppers, eggplant and cherry tomatoes. I decided to roast them, and then I thought roast veg sausage will be good too, so I did.
Add some freshly squeezed lemon juice~ for even more freshness into the dish!
If you really like lemony taste, you can add lemon zest as well. I just didn’t want it to be over powering.
I thought, how abut add some mung beans and sweet rice into chick peas…?
So I did!
I served a bed of spinach, cucumber, tomato and avocado. Drizzle some more evoo and sprinkle some salt and pepper! It was DELISHHH!!
So we survive on our very first vegan day together, and it was actually quite good!
I’m looking forward to make more vegan recipes, and already can’t wait to share with you guys!!
Thank you for read this loooonnnnggg post, have a great Sunday!!!
I can go vegetarian for day or two but vegan is extremely hard because I was on homemade juice and salad last year for about 12 days(detox)and even though I felt great, full of energy at the same time I couldn’t wait to start eating cooked food esp. meat . I am bowing to you for trying and enjoying!
My hubby would be very unstabilized aka moody hahaha if he doesn’t have some kind of meat LOL! Men…more weak! Anyhow, awesome vegan menu esp. quinoa salad.
