i used to be a terrible cook, like really really REALLY bad, and have made such strides since getting married.
but last night my quinoa veggie bake sent me back to square one.
^^^ is the recipe i used last night
my quinoa veggie bake looked nothing like that 😦
this was my first time cooking with quinoa and i don’t think i cooked it long enough which ultimately lead to my dish’s demise.
cooking my quinoa
mixing my quinoa with a beat up egg, some shredded cheddar cheese, salt and pepper
after laying down my quinoa to make a crust, i topped it with a mix of eggs, cut up tomatoes/green peppers/onions and added salt and pepper
the end result!
like i said, i don’t think i cooked my quinoa long enough because it was still a little water-y when i poured it into the 9×13 pan so it didn’t really make a crust. that aside, the dish really didn’t have much flavor! i should have added much more salt and pepper or experienced with different spices. j is really good at that! i’ll have to ask for his help next time.
i took a few bites of this and then moved on to the ice cream sandwich that i made my dinner.
yesterday was so a monday!
what did you do for dinner last night?
was your recipe a success?
