fussy eater turned foodie

Mexican Style Quinoa

Inspired by one of the meals I had on my recent 3R cleanse, I decided to make a more substantial lunch time version. This Mexican style quinoa has all the essential flavours with less of the guilt you usually feel for eating Mexican food! Delicious with or without the egg, if you want to keep it vegan. Make ahead for a super quick lunch option and keep refrigerated for up to a few days.
