Broccoli Marinara

Pretty basic, but filling and tasty. Pasta, sauce & broccoli. An easy assembly!








Black Bean Peach Quinoa Bowl

A little sweet, a little spicy, a lot delicious. Happy Herbivore meal plans to the rescue again. It was a perfect meal for a hot evening when I didn’t feel like cooking anything. The only thing that needed heat was the quinoa, and that could have been made beforehand. A perfect summer dish.

Peach Quinoa Bowl





My mother in law made this beautiful quinoa salad with a hint of sesame, when my husband and I came for a visit. I just couldn’t resist taking a photo. It’s such a delightful summer meal.



Sloppy Joes

So, the recipe from Happy Herbivore called for lentils as the main ingredient…but my husband doesn’t really enjoy them. So, I used Trader Joe’s meatless ground and substituted it in the recipe. It was seriously satisfying, another awesome meal. Ruben had his on top of toasted sourdough bread.

I had mine as a sloppy burrito, I added spinach and tomatoes, but you can not see it in the picture, so you’ll just have to imagine it…
