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!

Quinoa with Everything Green

All the green veggies and quinoa too! High protein and fiber in a light and satisfying salad. Keep it vegetarian using water or vegetable broth to cook the quinoa, or use beef or chicken broth with cooked meat added if you like that.

2 cups broth or water
1 cup quinoa (I used this one with ancient grains)
1 cup edamame beans
1  1/2 cups chopped spinach
1 cup diced cucumber
1 avocado, sliced

2 tbsps chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp dry oregano
2 tbsps fresh lemon juice
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp light olive oil

First, cook the quinoa as directed on package then refrigerate for about 30 minutes or until chillled.

Mix the prepared veggies in a large bowl. Combine the parsley, oregano, lemon juice, garlic and olive oil. Add the cooled quinoa to the vegetables, then toss well with the dressing.

Refrigerate until ready to eat and top with sliced avocado.

Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a side.
