    From time to time, I’ll make a quinoa + veggies pilaf at home, sometimes with regular quinoa, sometimes with red quinoa. Both are yummy with veggies.

    For a even more hearty meal, I recommend adding either cubes of firm tofu or chunks of veggie sausage by Fieldroast (or another brand from your local health food shop).
