If food is meant to be alluring, tempting and seductive, then this dish nailed those desires. As simple as it was to prepare, I am classifying this as an anytime treat - This was one of the first dishes I made with my home grown veggies, and I realize I have over 20 recipes that I need to catch up on, what with the pickling, saucing and chutney-ing of all the tomatoes growing in the garden. This dish has exactly what you see in it - veggies, quinoa, and chives blossoms for decoration. A healthy one pot meal and a wonderful alternative to rice - so if you have some veggies around and quinoa in your pantry, whatchya waiting for.
