Chicken Curry Quinoa

I was introduced to quinoa a year ago but I am just now starting to eat it at regular intervals. Quinoa is a seed but cooks like rice. Plus, it’s a complete protein.


Protein Packed!

Chicken Curry Quinoa
(Recipe for 1)

  • One chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup quinoa
  • Stir fry veggies
  • Curry seasoning
  1. Cook the quinoa.
  2. Meanwhile stir fry the chicken, veggies, and curry together.
  3. When all is done serve together on your favorite plate!

Even though I spiced well with curry I felt it could use something else to give it an extra kick. Does anyone know other seasonings or sauces that go well with curry?

Overall this made a filling, yummy dinner – and is great for leftovers! Enjoy!


Black Bean Burgers

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

I hope everyone had a good time. Memorial day weekend is a classic for outdoor grilling. This year I decided to make black bean burgers. It was a relatively simple recipe that tasted great.


Grilled up and ready for eating!

Black Bean Burgers
(View the original recipe here)

What you’ll need:
1/2 medium yellow onion, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon chopped garlic 2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained, divided
2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro leaves
2 teaspoons freshly chopped parsley leaves
1 egg (I was at my parents who have chickens so I was lucky enough to get a fresh laid egg!)
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Salt and fresh ground black

In a food processor, blend the onion and garlic together.

Next add one can of black beans and spices, blend until smooth.

Then, in a bowl, stir the mixture, the second can of black beans, and the bread crumbs together.

Finally, make patties and grill on medium heat for about 6 minutes per side!

For condiments, try BBQ sauce 🙂
