We're in the season of frantic busyness and also the season of too much sweet, rich food, which is partly why this simple recipe for Quinoa with Roasted Brussels Sprouts from Culinary Types caught my eye for a Meatless Monday recipe. Both quinoa and Brussels sprouts are listed among The World's Healthiest Foods, so this is a meal that's loaded with nutritious goodness. And the quinoa and the Brussels sprouts are both quickly cooked on top of the stove. Although this could happily stand in as a side dish, personally I'd love a big plate of this for a quick and healthy December dinner.
