Get stuffed.

28 Mar

Georgia from Bakery Bookery posted the recipe for Stuffed Capsicums with Quinoa & Mushrooms and as soon as i saw it i knew i had to try it!

I adapted it a leeetle because –

 a) do you think i could find fresh spinach in this whole entire town? That’s a negative. So i used some buk choy (which worked out splendidly!)

b) I had sultanas in the house so used them in the place of currants.

c) I knew it would be a struggle to get the Mr to even try it because it was meatless and looked “fancy”, so omitted the nuts in an attempt to make it more “Mr – friendly” (although really, he should just suck it up and eat what i cook 😉 )

d) Also “stuffed” some portobello mushroom cups.

It was surprisingly simple to do, and totally easy to mix and match and adapt. Thank you so much for posting it Georgia, it was delicious!

We wandered back outside to the “picnic nest” i’d made earlier in the day – see the post below!

Quinoa

3 Feb

So it seems like the latest “it” grain is quinoa. On my quest for interesting vegetarian meals it kept popping up and intruiged me!

I bit the bullet and bought some from a health shop on Ebay, and it arrived this afternoon 😀

Georgia from Bakery Bookery made a delicious looking Quinoa Tabbouleh that i’m dying to try!

And just looking at this Vegetable Quinoa Pilaf makes me hungry!

I’d love to hear your favourite recipes too ♥
