Lovely Recipe Inspiration:

As we celebrate the first days of summer, I wanted to leave you with a little recipe inspiration with several ways to use quinoa. I honestly had no idea what to make for dinner the other day, but I had a batch of cooked quinoa in the fridge. What I ended up doing was chopping up whatever vegetables I could find in the fridge (happened to be orange and yellow bell peppers, zucchini, onion, and celery):

For flavor, I squeezed some fresh lime juice on top, and for staying power, I added pistachio nuts and sunflower seeds:

This salad was really easy to prepare and super tasty.

I had a conference call to do around dinnertime, so I left a bowl in the fridge for my man. We just passed 15 years of being together and we’ll celebrate our 10-year wedding anniversary in July. The love affair continues… :)

The leftovers of this salad could easily be wrapped up in nori or a tortilla. I made something similar a few months back and posted the recipe on Vegan Delish, my recipe app featuring over a 100 whole food recipes (get it here ). Here’s a screenshot of the iPad version:

The recipe for the Vegetable Quinoa Salad is also on the app; here’s a screenshot of the iPhone version:

While I was at the gym the other day, I took the opportunity to do a little vegan marketing by putting my app’s card on the bulletin board. I’ll have to check today and see if anyone has taken it:

If you like my blog or my app, would you consider telling your friends? I would absolutely love the referral, kinda like how the folks working at the dentist’s office always asks you to refer them? I’m way more fun than the dentist, though!
