Last week Christy Morgan, aka The Blissful Chef, was in San Francisco as part of her book tour. Christy and I became friends while living in L.A., so we made sure to squeeze a video in before she left my new town. I did a poll on the EVG Facebook page and I was surprised that the recipe chosen by the majority featured Brussels sprouts, a vegetable few people seem to like. However, I was thrilled because I love Brussels, butternut squash, and almonds.


What is quinoa? Pronounced keen-wah, this grain-like seed is full of protein and calcium (who needs meat or milk?!) Very versatile and can be used like rice, and it's gluten-free. Wanna learn more? Check out my article on Organic Authority
 


These recipes were the result of not having a lot of food in the kitchen - I found some recipes on Food.com and Epicurious and adapted them a little. They each cost less than $1.50 per serving and took less than 10 minutes to prep. You can change up the ingredients a little based on what you have on hand in your own kitchen. Both recipes are gluten, soy, and sugar free, and low in salt and oil.
