From Garden to Plate: Growing Sustainable Vegan Food

Standard

From garden to plate, or straight to mouth, here is a quick look at some of the food we have been growing in our garden. With lots of learning along the way, we are enjoying the experience in learning to live a more sustainable life through this process as well as eating delicious healthy vegan meals made with lots of aroha (love).

There are many ways to eat quinoa. We ate it with vegetables as we needed to make a pumpkin puree for our cookies. You can eat it in place of rice as a variety of side dishes, make vegan quinoa sushi, mix with kale or other greens, use in baking, or mixed with avocado. Quinoa can easily be added to almost any meal. We made some up and had leftovers in the fridge to add to all of our meals for protein and nutrition.

You can buy quinoa as a grain or mixed grain, quinoa cereal, and even quinoa puffs.
