Quinoa Bowl with Vegan Mushroom Gravy and Kale

Posted Mar 25 2012 10:37am
I make a strong effort, in my life, to accentuate the positive in every situation. Yes, it is crappy that GF Guy and Dickens are gone. Yes, I miss them. Yes, I get lonely. 

BUT...

GF Guy is so unbelievably happy. This job is an amazing opportunity for him, and us. I travel 4 days a week as it is. It is selfish of me to want him to stay at home and wait for me. 

Yes, it is hard, but I have developed excellent coping mechanisms. Yesterday morning, I felt myself starting to mope around. I made myself take a shower and run errands. I contacted the director of the show GF Guy was working on here in Colorado, before he left, and was able to go see a performance of that show, called Magic Moments . Magic Moments was a delight! Picture a review style show with actors ranging from ages 4 to 64, some in wheel chairs, some with Down Syndrome, some with Cerebral Palsy... It was completely and utterly inspiring and humbling, and just what I needed to gain some perspective.  I arrived home to make a recipe that has been sitting on my Pinterest board for far too long. I haven't made it because GF Guy loathes mushrooms. I, on the other hand, love them. Insert sunny side of this situation: I can make recipes that I will like instead of having to compromise! 
I found this recipe on the Oh She Glows blog, an inspiring healthy lifestyle blog you should definitely check out.
My changes:
  • My Whole Foods didn't have any Millet (weird, right?!), so I substituted Quinoa in its place. 
  • I also used Bragg's Liquid Aminos instead of Tamari. 
  • I added about 1 cup of steamed Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Carrots, and extra Red Kale.

  • This recipe is delicious, hearty, and I can't wait to eat the leftovers! If you are a mushroom lover, then this recipe is for you! Click on the recipe title or image to see the recipe.
