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!

Simple Quinoa and Orzo

 Light vegetarian fare...

1  1/2 cups vegetable broth

1/2 cup orzo

1/2 cup quinoa

1 tbsp avocado oil

1 tbsp butter

1 cup quartered mushrooms

1 tbsp minced garlic

1/2 cup red and/or green sweet pepper

1 green onion, sliced thinly

1 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp turmeric

1/4 tsp black pepper

Bring broth to a boil, then add the orzo and quinoa. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand covered for 5 minutes.

Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet. Sauté the mushrooms 2-3 minutes, then add the garlic, sweet pepper and onion. Cook 2-3 minutes longer.

Add the quinoa and orzo to the skillet along with the oregano, turmeric and black pepper.

Stir together until all warmed through and it's ready to serve!

Serves 2 as a meal, 4 as a side.
