Vegan Jollof Quinoa
With so much happening in the news, the frustration is that some reports are not changing. I have been flitting about working on some things I will be excited to share soon. I made this Vegan Jollof Quinoa ages ago meaning two weeks prior, but doesn’t that seem like last year?
The palpable tension of the moment cannot be understated. My neighbor admonished me to grocery shop early and well before the election because no matter who wins trouble will ensue (she insinuated she thinks it will be Biden). Young agitators will be roaming the streets rioting and rambunctious because their candidate did not come out the victor. I hope she is right about some things, others no.
I will continue to be hopeful, continue to fight against oppression in any form, continue to speak out against racism, sexism and discrimination, never tire and never stop in these efforts. I will continue to be a learner, to evolve, to try, hopefully thrive. I will continue to create new recipes like the Vegan Jollof Quinoa; I’ll keep pairing the novel with the true blue classics like Caribbean Cod and keep real hope alive. #BLM.

This recipe comes out really nicely. I wanted to try a vegan variety of a jollof dish and was certainly not disappointed. Very tasty indeed. Thanks for sharing this.
It looks like there are greens in it. Baby spinach. Just wasn’t sure. Cucumbers too? It looks delicious and so good for you! Thank you.
Hahaha, the quinoa is actually underneath the shrimp in this photo Alene. I never quite captured the proper image. When I prepare it again I may post a new photo.
