Quinoa. |ˈkēn-ˌwä|. I have to admit, I have tried to cook quinoa before on a couple of occasions. Every single time, my attempts have not turned out as I had hoped. The first time I remember putting it into my mouth and being horrified at the lack of flavor (I […]
Quick Prep Meals
Paella is a traditional Valencian dish, and usually has meat such as rabbit, chicken and duck. This version is tasty and healthy as well, without any of the added animal fats.
I decided to finally try making some raw walnut taco meat for a quick dinner. I searched around the web and found this recipe on The Vedge. Aside from having to soak the walnuts overnight, this was very easy to put together. This taco “meat” feels and tastes surprisingly like […]
