Quinoa Vegetable Jambalaya

I found this recipe yesterday doing a search for eggplant, zucchini and quinoa–the ingredients I had on hand. Anyway, I added some ingredients and took away the oil and made it last night. It made a good bit, and it was very good and filling.


Quinoa Skillet Dinner

I got this somewhere on the net and made it for the first time last week. Very easy. Next time I think I’ll use chili powder or cumin instead of the basil and thyme; the spices didn’t seem right to me, though my husband loved it.


Polenta with Tomato-Shiitake Sauce

This recipe is from cooking light, and I think it would be pretty “family friendly.” You could maybe sub. normal button mushrooms to make it more “kid friendly.” It is very quick and easy, which is great for families! I just eliminated the oil and sautéd the veggies in water, which works great.

Here’s another quick recipe my family adores that can be made quickly and served in those acorn squash boats or alone.
