Vegan Vittles Quinoa Primavera

November 5, 2010 by Keri

Perhaps I enjoyed the vibrancy of Asian Fusion‘s dishes or perhaps I’m just trying to compensate for these solid grey clouds that have taken residence over our home, but even when moving to another cookbook, I chose colorful.  It certainly isn’t primavera here, but I couldn’t help but be drawn to the simplicity of Quinoa Primavera (page 166) while flipping through Vegan Vittles.  In and out of the kitchen in 30 minutes or less isn’t something I necessarily what I look for in a recipe, but it was perfect for a day when I had too many to-dos on my plate.

Drops of rain began hitting my plate as I took  photos, but it was as though I had a plate full of sunshine right in front of me!  I know, I know, I’m so corny, but bright food always brightens my day.  When I noticed the recipe in Vegan Vittles only made two servings, I doubled the recipe, but I didn’t have double of everything.  To make up for the missing vegetables, I threw in corn too.  There’s nothing complicated about this dish.  It’s just quinoa, vegetables, salt and pepper, and a little dill.  Simple perfection.

  1. I like that squirrel. I would be sitting outside eating and tempting him with corn and zucchini bits.

    I had almost the same thing for dinner except with lentils instead of quinoa.

    Cute squirrel.

    Squirrels ROCK. And so does quinoa – that meal looks super scrum.
