Tri-color Quinoa and Greens Taco Filling

This recipe is one of my favorites because it has a ton of leeway. No red peppers? Use green peppers or toss in the leftover cooked veggies from last night. No quinoa? Leftover millet or even brown rice would do the job just fine. Just imagine cleaning out the fridge one a week on taco night!

Green Cabbage Soup

I think shaking up some sweet salsa in a squeeze bottle and drawing a heart outline on each soup’s bowl’s surface, with the cilanto dusting would make it a great Valentine’s dish.

Millet-Stuffed Golden Squashes

      For years, my daughter’s favorite after-school snack was Ore-Ida hash brown potato patties.
