Quinoa with spicy veggies

Hi everyone,

Here's what I made for dinner tonight, I was busy so didn't have a lot of time and this is a nice simple meal with diced onion chestnut mushrooms garlic sweet peppers diced hot chilli's with some frozen mixed veg and sprouts. I made a gravy with a little gram flour mixed to a paste with cold water low salt bouillon and yeast extract and I had plenty to show how easy it is to make a vegan gluten free gravy that is natural and wholesome. . I had it with red lentils and quinoa which I cook together.

Quinoa is a complete food so contains all the vital amino acids our bodies need which's the opposite of most processed food...and I cook it with some red lentils as they compliment each other I think. 😊

We had baked beans on toast tonight for dinner after a busy day job hunting and interviewing this morning and catching up with my friends this morning in town after they had looked through my employment tribunal form where I explained what had led me to deciding to resign back in November and a list of incidents and what had gone on and they said good on me for taking them to a tribunal and that there had been no need for them to have been so aggressive towards me when I had described the incidents of being criticised over seemingly trivial things and my friends said no they aren't trivial and they could see a pattern when they checked through the form and said how they would have walked out of there and not worked notice like I did.

Hey you want to try it HealthBuddyMelissa and have it instead of pasta or rice, I love it. 😊

I don't believe in wasting food so before the expiration date I will have to try it lol

I have a weird dislike for certain textures so I am thinking it will be like oatmeal which I hate.

The secret is to cook it thoroughly and when it's cooked little curls come out is has a really nice texture and taste and I prefer it to rice. 😊
