I’ve been working hard trying to get closer to the point where I can live off my garden and a few items bought in bulk. I was lucky to find that my co-op would order an extra bag for me of anything they normally sell in their bulk bins. I’ve started taking advantage of this and my last order was this bag of quinoa.
Although I’m growing a test patch of quinoa this year, I certainly don’t have room to grow enough grain for myself on my little urban lot. This one also happened to be a huge savings. I got this in bulk for about half the cost of the boxed quinoa in grocery stores.
As soon as I got it I made another batch of my mom’s Quinoa Stuffed Peppers too! This picture is from one of the last times my mom made it for a holiday dinner. I made my own without the out of season peppers and the filling was yummy as a casserole on it’s own.
