Quinoa with Roasted Vegetables

I am all about easy recipes and this quinoa with roasted vegetables is no exception.  Not only is this quinoa with roasted vegetables easy, but it calls for ingredients you may already have in your kitchen!  It’s going to be one of my go to recipes for sure.  Great in summer or winter.  Eat it hot or cold.  If you like quinoa recipes, you may also like this and this.

I was really amazed that this dish had so much flavor with such simple ingredients.  Another thing you can probably do with this is to cook the quinoa in vegetable broth instead of water.  It should add an even deeper level of flavor.  This dish is vegan and gluten free.  I hope you enjoy it.

Peach Pie Overnight Oats

I have a new overnight oats recipe for you!  This time it’s peach pie overnight oats.   These peach pie overnight oats came out very good.  I pureed my peaches to put in this recipe, but you could also add chunks of peaches instead if you like.

One of the best things about overnight oats is that there is no cooking required!  I make 5 at a time for easy breakfasts all week.  You can eat them cold or hot.  I eat them cold and it actually reminds me of cold cereal.  If you wanted to make these more of a peaches and cream oats, you could add in some plain yogurt or cashew cream.  Yum!

Orange Cream Truffles

These Orange Cream Truffles are super good!  The other day, a reader of mine asked if I had any chocolate recipes with orange cream.  I didn’t at the time, but I loved the sound of a dessert like that.  That is how these orange cream truffles were born.  If you like my strawberry creme truffles, then you will love these orange cream truffles!  It’s like a bite sized creamsicle covered in chocolate.  How yummy is that?  I think these truffles would be great without the chocolate too.

Orange Truffles - My Whole Food Life

These orange cream truffles are super easy to make.  All you need is 6 simple ingredients!  These truffles are vegan, gluten free and paleo.  They would be a great dessert to take to any party.  No one would have any idea they were made a little healthier.  I honestly think if you used super sweet oranges, you could eliminate the maple syrup all together.  You could also use my 3 ingredient chocolate recipe instead of chocolate chips!
