Menu Planning 12/16 & Quinoa Mac n Cheese

Posted Dec 16 2012 8:37am
Linking up with  Laura  and  Jill  who are hosting a weekly menu planning link up every Sunday. Check out their posts to see what others are making and find more healthy meals. We are going on week 4 of gluten free for O and seeing minimal changes: 3 weeks down and 1 to go before I make a decision about this. Poor kid is making the connection and frequently asked "why my tummy not better, I'm eating gluten free?" Sorry baby girl I wish I had an answer :(
Here is our plan for the week as we are entering the crazy holiday season! 


Veggie/Tofu Stir Fry

Black Bean/ Veggie Enchiladas

Quick pre-run ProBarApple
Blueberry Pancakes & scrambled tofu

Pre-run Sandwich

Red Curry Squash

Black Bean Soup

A new recipe that is a requested one already here. I think I might even put this on the Christmas menu!

Quinoa Mac N Cheese
1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 cups water
2 roasted bell peppers diced
1 can black beans rinsed/drained
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tsp cumin
1 tbsp hot sauce (or less)
1 cup corn
2 cups cheddar cheese
½ cup plain Greek yogurt
½ cup rice milk (or other milk)
½ cup breadcrumbs

Cook quinoa and water just until tender or slightly under done. Mix cooked quinoa, beans, peppers, garlic, cumin, hot sauce, corn and milk. Then add in yogurt and cheese. Put in greased baking dish and top with breadcrumbs. Bake in preheated 350F oven for 20-25 minutes.  

And now...
