Quinoa, Cheese, & Bacon (GF, SF, DF)
One cup of quinoa, make sure you rinse it with water, or it will taste very bitter. Add two cups of water to a pot with the quinoa, and cook like rice. You will know it's done when you see a small tail like shape inside the quinoa.
I am a big meat eater, and meat is acidic, so I figured I could balance out the acid in the bacon by creating a dish with my quinoa, which is alkaline. Crispy bacon, love it, oh and I need to mention I don't eat pork bacon I use turkey bacon.
You can use how much bacon you want, along with quinoa. I have often mentioned my love for cheese which no longer likes me. Due to my tremors I discovered nutritional yeast, and found a great recipe, but it was for nachos, and a enough to feed your guests at a party. I wanted just enough for my new creation, and found a recipe from Oh She Glows. As always I revamped it to meet my needs.
3/4 Cup of water, or milk of choice, I used filtered water
6 Tbsp of nutritional yeast
1 Tbsp of choice of butter, used Earth Balance
1 Tbsp of gluten free flour, used corn
Sea salt, and pepper to taste
This was enough for my dish, and I added some of my other favorite seasoning to it. This is just the basic recipe, once this is complete you can add whatever seasonings you want. Next time I will add some broccoli to it, oh and I forgot to mention that I sprinkled chia seeds on top. That's the black stuff you see on the top.
