pls help with protein sources - Page 2

post #21 of 24
Thanks for the info! I should have said an animal protein "or similar", which I imagine would include nuts and seeds? I have some reading to do! I also am glad to know the complete proteins don't need to happen in a single meal...seems a lot more doable that way.

Layer 2: 2 cups Hummus, either homemade or store bought (Be careful not to break up the quinoa layer when spreading the hummus.)

Layer 3: 5 1/2-6 cups Roasted Veggies. The actual recipe calls for fennel bulb, zucchini, and red or yellow bell pepper; however, it also suggests substitutions such as mushrooms, blanched broccoli, thinly sliced eggplant, kalamata olives. My husband and I have added onions and we've also used whatever bell peppers we have on hand, mostly green.

To roast the veggies, toss them with 2 TBS Olive oil, 2 tsp balsamic Vinegar, 1/4 tsp salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bake at 450 for 15-18 minutes.

After the casserole is assembled, bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes. When it is done cooking, drizzle with Olive Oil. You may also sprinkle with herbs such as parsley or basil.
OT - what does hummus taste like when baked? I have never tried that recipe before because I was a little wary that it would get dried out.

I've never had it dry out before. It's actually really good. It's one of my favorite "throw something together" easy recipes. You should definitely try it.

ETA I also like it for its versatility. You can literally use whatever veggies you have on hand.

Thanks! I'll have to try it.
