Seconds Please


I was reading my friend's blog and came across this recipe and knew I had to try it.

With all my allergies if I find something that is "clean" for me to eat and it looks this good 🙂 I am anxious to make it my own.

My children are good sports and they let me know if something is a success or failure.

This one was gobbled up and seconds and even thirds were served!!


Thanks Alexis for the recipe…I adore you!!!

I changed the recipe just a bit.

2 cups of quinoa

1-2 chopped red pepper

1/2 diced red onion

Roasted butternut squash.  I had 1/2 of a squash for each serving and used it as a bowl.

   1 cup chopped parsley

Olive  Oil

Sea Salt

Balsamic Vinegar

Bragg Liquid Amino

I make the quinoa and then set aside. I then mix all the remaining ingredients and mix with olive oil, sea salt and balsamic vinegar to taste.

I also love to add Bragg's Amino Acid to mine.  I love the flavor.

Let me know if you try it.

    i’m always so impressed with your recipes
    i have no idea what quinoa or bragg liquid amino is…i feel so nutritionally behind
    we had two guests over for dinner last night. i couldn’t even get all my 4 items to be hot & ready simultaneously. that rolled into a stroll ( by my children who surely respect me…ha) down the memory lane of meals-gone-bad.
    good thing i can laugh at myself….along with the masses!

    Yummy, I
    am so making
    this! My kids
    are very good
    sports about
    new recipes and
    we love quinoa.
    I’ve never used
    liquid amino and
    will have to pick
    it up. Thanks
    for tonight’s
    dinner inspiration!

    I have been wanting to make butternut squash somehow and now can! I love quinoa! Where do you get the amino acid? I assume the health food store. Thanks for the recipe.:)

    I am so glad you found something delicious and clean! I know how that is…I have all those weird allergies, too. Looks just yummy, too. There was so much good healthy food that was “clean” for me in Croatia. Then there was all the sugar. That is not a good thing for me.

    This looks so delicious and yay it doesn’t have meat in it! Where do you get liquid amino? Is it in the spice section?
