Baby, it’s cold outside. Time to start thinking about warm cozy meals, while also savoring the last bit of fall. You can do it; eek it out, before it’s officially snow season. Take these beautiful autumnal vegetables for example. Roast ’em, then toss ’em in mustard and balsamic. They can play sidekick to a piece of fish or meat — they’d actually be a perfect tablemate to your turkey on Thanksgiving — or you can do as I did (in the photo below) and mix ’em up with a handful of mini scallops and call it dinner.
Tastes just like your favorite fried rice, except it’s way healthier because it’s made with quinoa instead. Gluten- and guilt-free! I like this combination of vegetables, but you can easily throw in whatever you have in the fridge — zucchini, carrots, spinach, go crazy! — and it’ll be just as perfect.
That’s what Phil, one of my dinner guests, told me after scarfing down these delicious veggie balls. B said the same… and I was thrilled, because I definitely want to make these again soon. Next time, maybe I’ll try ’em with pasta, in a sandwich, or over a salad. The best part is, they’re hearty enough to be a meal all their own. And they’re healthy! It’s lentils, veggies, herbs, walnuts and eggs.
So where did I find the recipe?
