Make you Fink on Friday

abeefWhile I’m not a vegetarian and certainly not a vegan, there are some things that I like that qualify… not many, but some.

Found today a dish that I’d like.

Quinoa fried rice stuffed tomatoes (Dairy Free)

This Dairy free recipe contains Ripe juicy tomatoes are hollowed out and filled with quinoa stir fried veggies. Quinoa is sautéed with stir fried veggies and sauces; Stuffing can be personalised as per the taste.

Health Benefits:

Tomatoes act as an excellent source of the strong antioxidant, vitamin C, potassium and choline content in the tomatoes all support heart health.

Fried rice using quinoa instead of rice as its high in protein and fantastic wheat-free alternative. Quinoa is a tiny grain that cooks up like rice and has nutty flavour and light, fluffy, texture similar to couscous.

This makes a fantastic vegetarian main course as it is stuffed with quinoa.

    Well that looks yummy! Bet the filling would work great in stuffed peppers as well! Thanks, AV!
