This vegetable stuffed quinoa with steamed zucchini dish didn’t last very long on my plate. I tried, but it just didn’t last. I loved the taste of this vegetable stuffed quinoa supported by the simple taste of steamed zucchini. This is a vegan and vegetarian dish, but anyone can enjoy it. This is one tasty, but also one healthy quinoa dish.

    Merry Thank You so very much!…for the vegetable stuffed quinoa receipt, indeed delicious it was. Thus far, I’ve also tried two of the smoothies; Bam-Bam and Banana-Strawberry Date. They are a part of my daily nutrition. However, would you recommend using the Goji powder as to the actual Goji berries? I inquire because healthy food is hard to come-by in my geographical location. The fast food, junk food industry has taken control of this small town located in Kentucky. Also, which cacaco powder do you prefer?

    In All Ways, Peace~n~Love…

      As long as you know the goji powder is really goji berries, it is fine. I don’t eat much cacao now but when I do I get the Nativa brand. Peace and Blessings be with you.
