A healthy vegan and gluten free one pot lime quinoa and artichoke meal that comes together in under 30 minutes and is bursting with fresh flavors
I’ve been in Europe for the last three weeks and it seems like my blog may have gotten a bit neglected in the process.
I just can’t help it.
Europe is simply too charming to spend hours behind a computer screen. With the spring weather coming around, I’ve got to explore, walk down those narrow streets, lined with colored window panes and balconies filled with flower pots.
The smell of a freshly made cappuccino and the clink of a wine glass has me begging for an afternoon outdoors sitting on the terrace of a quaint cafe and simply people watching.
In times like these you don’t even want to be in the kitchen.
And that’s when you need a quick non demanding meal to allow you to get back to the city strolling. So welcome lime quinoa into my life.
This vegan lime quinoa with artichokes and avocado comes together in under 30 minutes. You basically have the quinoa cooking as you prep all the other ingredients. No other cooking required. Just one pot for the quinoa and a cutting board is all that you need.
This one pot lime quinoa meal has plenty of fresh vibrant flavors from the herbs and everything in life is better with a bit of artichoke and avocado. Don’t you agree?
Oh and a few squeeze of lime too is a must. Don’t you just love meals that come together in under 30 minutes and in one pot ? Minimal mess and low fuss. No clean up required. Just rinse off the cutting board and you can even store the leftovers of this lime quinoa in the pot you made the quinoa in. Now that’s what I call easy cooking! Now that’s what I call easy week night cooking that allows you to still enjoy the rest of your eating while having a nutritious and healthy home cooked meal from scratch.
