'whole grain sundays', a weekly meme to show you all how we are trying to incorporate a multitude of whole grains into our daily lives. It's easy to get stuck in the the oatmeal/bread roll/potato mindset when it comes to providing your family with their daily carbohydrates. Each Sunday we will share a different recipe we have been enjoying while reaping the benefits of a variety of ancient and wholegrains.

Simple Summer Quinoa
2 cups cooked quinoa
1 bunch fresh, roughly chopped mint
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds
Olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste
Make sure quinoa is cooled enough that the mint won't wilt at all when incorporated. Stir the dressing together and put aside. Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl, add dressing, toss and serve with grilled tempeh, veggie dogs, veggie burgers or any other vegetable protein you choose.
