What great recipes! These all sounds really tasty adn super easy to make. I have a super great quinoa salad recipe that is super easy to make, and it's very filling. You cook the quinoa in vegetable broth, then once it's cooked you add celery, lemon juice, carrots, crainsins, fresh mint, pine nuts, and garlic, and it is wonderful!
