I had this recipe on Pinterest for the longest time to save for later. Since it featured quinoa and was (almost) kosher for Passover, I figured now was the perfect time to make them! They are so cute and yummy, full of vegetables and protein. I found this recipe on a blog that is full of great ideas and recipes – everything I have made from it has been great. I highly encourage you to check out The Slow Roasted Italian.
These are a perfect side dish with a meal, or could be an easy portable snack. They would also be great to serve as appetizers or hors d’oeuvres a party
This is one of my favorite recipes to make for potlucks. Its easy, fast, and can be served hot or cold. It’s a great vegan main-dish option that everyone else will enjoy too. You can even make it gluten-free if you substitute rice or rice-based noodles for pasta.
I first made it with this recipe, and I highly recommend it.
I’ve posted here the instructions for how I would usually make it, but when I made it last I had to leave some things out because I didn’t have them. I used macaroni instead of spaghetti, white sugar instead of brown, and I had to leave out the ginger and scallions. The flavor is much less complex without these ingredients, but it still tastes ok. This isn’t the first time I’ve needed ginger, though, so if you’re planning on making a decent amount of Asian-style food, I’d recommend picking it up. I also want to experiment with using ginger in other types of food, because it’s a great spice that isn’t used very often, so it should give your food an unusual, new taste.
So I went out to dinner last night, but I figured I would put up a blog post anyway. Here’s the recipe for the roasted broccoli I made a few nights ago (the leftovers went into the lasagna). Its super simple, and very delicious.
Broccoli florets (as much as desired)
1-2 heads of garlic
Spread the garlic in a thin layer across a baking pan. Sprinkle whole, peeled garlic cloves throughout. Pour a small amount of olive oil over the broccoli and garlic, and bake until crispy, about 12 minutes.
