I love a hearty, healthy dish that can easily be prepared in one pot that is ready in under 30 minutes!
Halloween is over. It was a great day here in the Kelly house, but boy am I exhausted.
All 3 of my little guys want to be in different places and I am left trying to coordinate everything. So as fun as it is (and I kept reminding myself to look at it through their excited little eyes), I am happy it’s over.
Maybe I am just getting old and crotchety but it’s one long day.
So now it’s all about Thanksgiving. And side dishes. Lots and lots of delectable side dishes.
I’d say this could be a holiday side dish, but since there are quinoa and beans in here, this would also qualify as a nutritious, meatless main dish.
Shout out to my vegans out there! Heeeeeeey!
With the holidays coming up, I am all about making life easier. This recipe calls for one dish and that’s it. Super easy and less clean up! We are busy enough around the holidays so I appreciate any free time I can get.
Side note: I have a friend that finished all of her Christmas shopping.
I haven’t even begun to think about Thanksgiving, let alone Christmas!
And why do the stores put out there Christmas stuff before Halloween even arrives?
Now I am just rambling.
