Quinoa Stir Fry

This is a delicious vegetarian stir fry packed with vegetable protein. I used sun-dried tomatoes that gave it a very nice flavor, and from there, be creative! You can add the vegetables of your choice. This time, I prepared it with mushrooms and spinach.

Light Dinner

After all the Christmas Festivities and before New Year’s Eve, I have the perfect dinner for you, Red Quinoa Beet Pear Salad. This recipe will give you a little break from all the heavy dinners you’ve been having. It’s light and healthy, vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, low fat and of course: delicious!

My Christmas was wonderful. I had a very nice time with my family. Family time is always precious to me. I don’t see them very often, so I treasure these moments very much. At my mother in law’s we share a phrase or paragraph that means something special to us. This sharing is very enriching because we learn a lot from each other. The phrase that I shared is from Saint Francis of Assisi:

“Start with what is necessary, then with what is possible and soon you’ll be doing the impossible”

I think this phrase is very powerful because sometimes we are so focused on our final goal and we see it so far away that we desist before we start. So I’ve been trying to put this philosophy in practice.

As for gifts, my children gave me the perfect one: an apron with the embroidery “Compartiendo mi cocina”. Loved it, so thoughtful!

These days that we are haveing family time together, I am preparing the dish of their choice. I am so happy to have them all home, I can spoil them a little… or a lot! Today is Victoria’s turn. And her choice is Quinoa Salad with Sun Dried Tomatos. This salad is very easy to prepare, it makes a great lunch o light dinner, it is vegetarian and gluten free. The best part is that the combination of all flavors turns out to be amazingly tasteful!

Victoria is a great artist (among many other things) she has a very special sensitivity. So I can’t help but share a piece of one of her drawings.
