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..
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!

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.)
