Earlier this week I found myself very hungry for lunch, but didn't have a lot of time. I looked in my refrigerator and made this super yummy lunch with simple items found in my fridge and the meal was complete in under 10 minutes. Thought I should share.
Leftover Items in my fridge:
Cooked Quinoa- plain (I have this in my fridge for quick yummy breakfast recipes- found here)
1 red pepper
1 bunch cilantro
Frozen corn (always found in my freezer)
Refried Veggie Quinoa
I placed a small amount of olive oil in my frying pan along with 1 tsp veggie boullion paste. I added my cooked quinoa (about 2 cups) and began stirring the grains. I chopped up the red pepper into small pieces and added this along with a handful of frozen corn to the quinoa. I continued to mix the quinoa over medium high heat. Once everything was heated to a very warm heat, I added the cilantro (chopped fine) and juiced the lime. The small amount of veggie paste flavored the quinoa great- with the cilantro and lime...it was so yummy!
I ate this veggie quinoa with a half of a diced baked potato, heated up and sliced avocado and Creamy Tomatillo Dressing- found here.
LIFE IS GOOD!
