Favorite Recipes–Poppers, Asparagus, and Quinoa

018

 

In addition to being healthy, quinoa also has the ability to make you fill full and satisfied after a meal. My husband and I love cooking 1 part of uncooked quinoa in 2 parts boiling water until the quinoa becomes nice and fluffy. We also like cooking asparagus in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit in a little bit of oil and garlic until the ends become crispy. Once we remove the asparagus from the oven, we sprinkle feta cheese over the top and let the feta melt a little bit before serving. 

Then, to top off the dish, we add Poppers. I do not know about you, but I miss the taste of bread straight from the oven. The warmth, texture, and fragrance was bliss. Poppers (as I lovingly call them) fill the void in my life. You can visit the link below for this recipe (the author refers to these rolls as Pao de Queijo). The recipe calls for cheddar and Parmesan cheeses, but I have enjoyed experimenting with other cheeses, too. With a dish like this, it feels good to be gluten free!
