Eating my winnings

An avid blog-reader, I had never entered a blog sponsored contest until I saw that A-K of Swell Vegan was giving away a couple of her Swell recipe zines. I jumped in and and wouldn't you know it - I won! My zine has arrived in the post and, not being one to sit around wondering about food, I decided to try one of the recipes straight away.

Behold - Coconut Red Bean Quinoa!
I didn't have any kidney beans so I used aduki, and it was just as lovely. Wonderful warmth from the ginger and the comforting creamy goodness of coconut milk. I am already eyeing the recipe for sweet potato black bean burgers with millet and leeks, but that will have to wait for another day.

A-K takes fantastic food photos and her enthusiasm is catching, so if you ever feel the need for a sensual boost to your day, try her blog. Thanks, A-K!

Sounds like you enjoyed the cooking. It's really nice trying new stuffs in the kitchen and find out that it tasted good the first time you did it. :)
