Zucchini and Basil Quinoa Pilaf Recipe

If you're looking for a truly healthy, protein-rich food to anchor your diet, I highly recommend that you consider quinoa (pronounced keen wah). Called the "mother of grains" by the Incan empire, quinoa is native to South America, and is naturally rich in all nine essential amino acids - these are amino acids that we humans can't make from other nutrients, so must obtain from our diet. Quinoa is one of a few grains that are gluten-free, and for most people, it's easy to digest and utilize. Read more about Zucchini and Basil Quinoa Pilaf Recipe

Roasted Pumpkin and Feta Risotto Recipe

If you're a fan of rich and creamy risotto dishes, you'll definitely want to give this pumpkin and feta version a try. If pumpkin isn't readily available, try using butternut squash or sweet potato in its place - all three are excellent sources of beta-carotene and dietary fiber.

If you have trouble tolerating dairy, exclude the feta that this recipe calls for. We think it's just as good without the feta, although the feta does add a great little tang to this special dish. Read more about Roasted Pumpkin and Feta Risotto Recipe

 

Pumpkin Rice Recipe

October is the perfect month to enjoy this delicious pumpkin rice dish. It calls for a cup of dried apricot and/or raisins to add just a touch of sweetness to this nutrient-dense meal.
