One Pot Vegan Mexican Quinoa

by | August 28, 2018

If you’re like me, then you love eating but hate cleaning up after cooking. I’ve found that the more dishes my recipes use the less I want to make them during the week. I like to think I’ve become a master of one-pot dishes, and this Mexican quinoa is no different.

It’s packed full of veggies and can be mixed up in any way you like. You can eat it hot or cold, which makes it a perfect dish for bringing to work the next day too. Who said healthy food has to be boring?
