Roasted Vegetable and Quinoa Salad

Disclaimer alert: This dish is obnoxiously healthy. Proceed at your own risk. I’ve been known to be somewhat of a disclaimer queen in my day. “These dusty baseboards are not my fault!

Chicken-Quinoa Burgers with an Avocado-Yogurt Sauce

Print Friendly

Or as my soul beggeth, Chickeeeenwa burgers. And while we’re at it, don’t look too closely at my sweet potato fries.
