Quinoa is actually *really nice*. As was the huge heap of roast veggies and good saussies I just ate with it :)

Still cooked far too much veggies though :)

(yes, I'm on a health kick, and also a "stop spending so much money on packaged food" kick)


This meal has a number of attractive points for me - one being that it's delicious, two being that it's very healthy (with the possible exception of the sausages, which could probably be removed for a very pleasant vegetarian meal), and three that it can pretty much all being prepared on a chopping board by waving a sharp knife around, then slung in the oven giving me time to get the majority of the washing up done (or in this case, call my gran) while it cooks. Quinoa is astoundingly easy to prepare, too - even more so than white rice.

I've been eating couscous for ages; it's what I usually have with roast veg. 'Tis good stuff.

How are you at making rice? I'm pretty good if you use basmati.
