New Year’s resolutions usually include healthier eating and we at Gourmet Ontario are no different. We, just as many of you, have pledged to eat healthier, run a little more, and get more sleep. We have tried to implement “Meatless Mondays” here and this is one of our healthier recipes.

We have tried several recipes with quinoa in them since last fall. The kids loved this one, but we will be posting a few more in the next coming months. We hope one of our recipes inspires you to try it too.
