Spinach-Chickpea-Sundried Tomato Quinoa Bake

Sorry, the pic sucks, it was too dark and I had to photo-shop it- I promise this meal tastes better than it looks!

I actually wrote it down the ingredents for once:
2 cups raw quinoa
approx. 3 tbs chopped sundried tomatoes in oil
1 tbs oil from the sundried tomatoes (or other oil)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
3 1/2 cups veg broth
1 package frozen chopped spinach, defrosted
1 19oz can chickpeas
a pinch of garlic powder
a pinch of salt

Stir together and cook in a big baking dish, covered, for 45 mins or until it looks good.
I saw a non-vegan recipe like this with egg- I wonder what I could use to make this stick together..

Spinach Salad

Sometimes salads are awesome. Here is one made from organic baby spinach, raw sunflower seeds, cubes of baked tofu, english cukes, and a vinegrette made from white wine vinegar, toasted walnut oil (my new favourite thing in the whole world), and maple mustard. Woo!

Purely Decadent Coconut Milk Ice Cream

I found the Purely Decadent coconut milk ice cream here (at Rainbow Foods)! It is the BEST vegan ice cream I have ever tasted - including the stuff I've made myself in my ice-cream maker! We had the cookie dough kind and it was fabulous. I love that it is made with agave nectar instead of sugar! (Agave has a low glycemic index so it doesn't affect your blood sugar like refined sugar does.)
