We made One Pot Mexican Quinoa from CrazyVeganKitchen for dinner last night and fell in love!! This is one of the best recipes we have tried in a long time so I felt I had to share it here. Our dinner conversation sounded something like “Omg this is so good”… “This is literally so good” “I love this” (very intellectually stimulating….ha). Needless to say I high recommend it!
This vegan recipe is protein-packed with quinoa and black beans and super easy to make. This is something I can totally see myself making a large batch of on Sundays to take for lunches during the week.
Check out the recipe here. Modifications we made were as follows:
– Spices: omit salt, add approx. 2 tsp curry powder, 2 tsp chilli powder, an additional 1/2 tsp cumin and a little more cayenne, mix in chopped green onions before serving.
– Cashew Sour Cream: We used this recipe from Oh She Glows. If you have not made Cashew Sour Cream before your mind will be blown and I don’t think this recipe would be the same without it.
We also omitted the carrots (because we didn’t have any on hand) and rinsed the diced tomatoes (using 1/2 cup vegetable broth and 1/2 cup water instead of the tomato juices).
Hope you are having a great weekend 🙂 xo Jessica
