Maitake mushrooms, vegetable quinoa pilaf, and baby lettuce = Wednesday Dinner

It was another glorious day here in the great Pacific Nortwest and also the day of the downtown Portland Farmer's Market. I love going to the Farmer's Market to get fresh, local produce :) Today I got Maitake mushrooms, delicious zucchini, carrots, red pepper, a bunch of parsley and baby lettuce.

I sauteed the mushrooms with garlic and onion, then added salt pepper, and parsley. The quinoa was cooked in vegetable broth, and I sauteed the onion, garlic, carrot, pepper, and zucchini in a separate Pan. Mixed the veggies with the quinoa when they were done. A perfect meal for a hot summer day!!! The girlies loved it :) By the way, Mia Rosie is a mushroom lover while Alea loved the pilaf. Oh, and I totally forgot to mention the grated Parmesiano Reggiano the ladies had with this meal. Veggies, protein, and calcium all with a perfectly "Safe" meal. And yes, it was also delicious and - vegan - without the cheese.

Have a great evening!
