    • 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

      1 lime

      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 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.
