QUINOA MEDLEY, my daughter's finding.

My daughter cooked this recipe and she, and her family, was so exited, she wanted me to put it on my blog, pictures and all:

You can  use  this dish as a salad topping, stuffing for tomatoes/green peppers or serve it as a side dish.

1 cup Quinoa
1 cup Black beans
1 cup Pinto beans
Sliced thin squash (1 medium)
 Half onion, chopped
1 to 2 Red peppers, chopped
Baby spinach and/or spring green mixed
Parmesan cheese.


               Bring 2 cups water to a boil in saucepan. Stir in quinoa, cover, and reduce heat to medium. Simmer 10 minutes.

 Add beans, squash, onion, garlic; season with salt and pepper.

 Cover, and cook 2 to 5 minutes more, or until quinoa is tender.

               Stir in parsley, parmesan cheese, oil and balsamic vinegar; if you prefer add any dressing I love: Annie's natural goddess dressing” serve it as a side dish. 

My son, Landen, said this was the best dinner ever. And we were very happy: we all ate a whole foods meal full of vitamins and healthy nutrients.
