Native American style Stuffed Poblanos 
Something a little different this week from an interesting book we got from the library called Foods of the Americas. These poblano’s are stuffed with currants, sweet potato, black beans, plantain, cheese and other goodness.
Would definitely make these again.

Spicy Thai Coconut Quinoa
The dressing in this recipe adds a tangy flavour boost to spice up this quinoa dish. We only had red quinoa on hand, but it still tasted great!
