I always remind myself that foods that are bright are also usually nourishing too and that is definitely the case with this colourful stir fried quinoa. Here is another non boring way to enjoy quinoa. Feel free to add any veggies you like. The more colourful the better.
Cumin Cauliflower Rice and Creamy Aubergine – More veggie goodness in the way of my favourite vegetable in a creamy sauce and a lighter alternative to jeera rice. Vegan, Pegan, Vegetarian , Gluten Free, Paleo and Keto Friendly.
I’ve been racking my brain to try and understand why I would put thyme on top of this as a garnish..And I don’t know either. Why girl why? Anyway, rest assured there is no thyme in this recipe and I will retake the photo when i have some time. Ha..get it.
AAAAAH FRIENDS. I have had such a meh week. Meh meaning bad. Since December last year I have been dealing with fraudulent clowns attempting to use my debit card for transactions and so I have been through over a month of chopping up my card, re ordering it and repeating that cycle over and over again. It’s all sorted now and I hope I will receive my final card next week but it is such a faff.
Basically it began with a purchase on Amazon. Who knew that there are dodgy sellers on Amazon? Luckily things are pretty secure with Amazon and I got all my money back eventually. Then in January I went through a similar experience with a company that isn’t on Amazon. Luckily, I wasn’t hit badly. Some people lost 4k.
Also, I suspect my Instagram got hacked because there were some strange goings on there too. I contacted Instagram and will probably have to wait till the end of time to hear back from them. Whoopee. To be frank, I wish I could get off social media altogether. I don’t know if I am about the vanity metric life.
So I’ve been a little..erm unfocussed this week. To the point where I have barely walked, which always makes me feel even worse. This weekend I am going to give myself a big hug, loads of time and some tlc before I go into next week. I will just pretend New Year is starting on Monday.
I have had alot of good things happen too. Some realisations. Some blessings. Like for example, a company that I love sending me the most amazing new kitchen gadget that I cannot wait to write about, People reaching out to me to do food photography for them (although one did put in a counter offer of less then half my original quote..why do people think things like that are ok?) and A realisation that I have grown so much as a person in the past year. That really is worth celebrating.
As ever if you do make the recipe, feel free to message me/tag me in the remake.
