The party season is upon us! Whether it’s Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas or New Year you’re celebrating, you’re need some munchies to have around whilst entertaining people. This is also great to eat on the sofa in front of a movie! 🙂
I was dubious at first, like, “how the hell is raw quinoa going to taste nice?” Trust me though. This is like having something breaded and crunchy.
(Ok so scale up if you need to because this was just for 2 people.)
2 courgettes, cut lengthways
1 aubergine, sliced into discs
2 sweet potatoes
1 pot of store bought salsa
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
2 tsp oil
2 tsp Jamaican all purpose or jerk seasoning
A large handful of raw, dry quinoa
Get the oven on full whack.
Slice up the sweet potatoes into chips, place on a baking tray and cover in oil and oregano. Add salt and pepper to taste and then chuck in the oven for 30 minutes.
Mix some salt, quinoa, oil and all purpose seasoning in a bowl.
Now dip the courgettes and aubergines into the bowl, making sure they get plenty of quinoa on them. (Your hands are going to get mucky. Deal with it.)
Place on a baking tray and bake for 20 minutes.
The sweet potato fries and quinoa crusted vegetables should be ready about the same time.
Serve with salsa.
