Seeing that last week offered up a birthday party and Valentine’s Day, to say we have indulged in a bit too much sugar would be an understatement. Therefore, I decided to repent by making a quinoa pilaf.

Yes, I said pilaf and no, you will not feel like you are sacrificing flavor. I pinkie promise.

Speaking of repenting and sacrifices, I have been thinking about the upcoming season of Lent. Recall last year’s Lent adventures? I am racking my brain thinking about what to ‘give up’ this year. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, you run off and try this recipe. If you are wondering why I have orange slices in the photo instead of lemon slices, it is because, I did not have any lemon left after I squeezed it into the pilaf. Lesson: take a slice for the photo, then squeeze the remainder into the recipe. Doh!

I’m such a fan of dishes like this. I’m not a big meat eater anyway but these kinds of recipes make me forget that I eat meat altogether. Love it!

I’m really trying to get back to cooking more quinoa each week. Would love having something like this waiting for me in the fridge for lunch every day!
