cheap vegan eats
So, I found this recipe a little while ago online and wanted to share the love. I've had hit-or-miss luck with quinoa, but this recipe is a definite win. Cheap, filling, VERY nutritous, and makes enough for the entire week. |
4 cups cooked quinoa (maybe a buck)
4 medium bananas (eighty cents @ Trader Joes)
5 Tbs peanut butter (maybe a buck and a half)
Total for the entire recipe - less than four bucks.
Cook rinsed quinoa as per package instructions. While quinoa is cooking, mash bananas in a medium-sized bowl. Add peanut butter, stir a bit to combine. When quinoa is done, transfer while still warm to bowl containing banana and peanut butter, and mix well.
Makes approx. 8 slightly-heaping 1/2 cup servings. Cals/serving: approx. 270
Serve warm, or cold. Reheats nicely.
Note: the quinoa will turn somewhat brownish when stored in the fridge - this is just the bananas in the mix oxidizing. It's still good to eat!
