Quinoa Vegetable Jambalaya

I found this recipe yesterday doing a google.com 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.

And it you look even more closely, you’ll see the residue of another  one above it where the clouds are breaking through. It is the Spring of 2014 on the Palouse. This […]
