31 Different Easy Quinoa Recipes | Meatless Monday Inspiration

31 Different Easy Quinoa Recipes | Meatless Monday Inspiration

I personally don’t eat much meat. In fact I haven’t eaten red meat or seafood in more than 20 years. I’ll eat chicken once in awhile, but by default, I gravitate toward vegetarian recipes.  So that’s why I want to share with you some easy quinoa recipes for other non-meat eaters!
I personally vegetarian meals better because of the taste (call me crazy, buy my taste buds just wretch at most meat!) But if you take meat out of some of your cooking, you’ll save money too!  Plus there are many health benefits to quinoa!  Being anemic myself from having a low meat diet, I was pleased to read about the iron content in quinoa.

Here is a nice compilation of 31 different easy quinoa recipes.  Not all of these recipes are meatless, but this is a wonderful collection of recipes if you want to try and experiment implementing quinoa into your diet! This is one of the ONLY plant foods that is a complete protein!
