Quinoa Dish

Turquoise Necklace
For this sweet necklace I used a sterling silver flower link to create the focal point. The strand is made up of turquoise nuggets that vary in shape and color. Available at Etsy.

Quinoa Dish
This easy dish is made by cooking up some quinoa. While that is cooking, we tossed asparagus, mushrooms and red bell pepper in olive oil with a dash of salt and pepper.
Then we tossed in halved cherry tomatoes.
All of this was mixed together along with feta cheese. Then we topped with a drop of goat cheese that melted into the dish. Simple, healthy, vegetarian, gluten free, filling, and delicious!
Thank you for stopping by. I wish you all a healthy, creative week! ~Val

  11. That is the cutest little flower Miss Val! I have yet to try quinoa but one day I will. Hopefully I will also get the kids to try out a scrumptious veggie dish such as yours. I still struggle with that! :(

  15. I love turquoise, so that necklace is amazing! The quinoa dish looks very tasty - and it's gluten free. =0) I just started a Pinterest board for gluten free recipes, so that's where this dish is going right now.

  20. Turquoise is a beautiful stone and I really like the necklace you created. Hopefully someone will snatch it up really soon! And that dish. Funny thing is, I was shopping for grains this weekend and I looked at a few different ones, but when I saw the quinoa I thought of you. I'd love to try this dish. It seems leftovers might be pretty tasty in a pita pocket or something. Delicious.
