I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Warm Quinoa Salad

Served warm or at room temperature this super healthy dish can be eaten as a side or a main, maybe add some halloumi, salmon or chicken if you're not vegetarian. And when (if) the weather every warms up you can always serve this chilled.

1 cup cooked quinoa (cooked in vegetable broth)
1 tbsp avocado oil
1/4 cup diced carrots
1/4 cup diced red pepper
1/4 cup diced red onion
1 tsp minced garlic
1 cup chopped spinach
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp dry parsley
1 tsp fresh lemon juice

Once you've cooked the quinoa set it aside. Heat the oil in a large skillet and add the carrots, red pepper and red onion. Cook, covered, on medium heat about 10 minutes or until carrots are tender. Stir in the garlic and cook one more minute.
Lower the heat and add the quinoa and spinach.
Mix the lemon juice, cumin and parsley and toss well before serving.

Serves 2 as a main, 4 as a side.
