Tomato kale quinoa casserole is one of our family favourite meals and I am so happy to share it with everyone to enjoy! It’s something out of the ordinary, very delicious and uses up extra kale and tomatoes. I loaded up last weekend at the fall fair farmers market, my favorite is the spaghetti squash but I love all the vegetables. My favorite vendor Mary Bridget shares her recipes with me and how to cook certain veggies like the black Spanish radishes boiled with potatoes and mashed. I tried and it was yummy! Up until last year I never cooked squash but Mary Bridget told me how to cook each one and with a little practice I also mastered it. No more canned pumpkin for me. I look forward to blog about squash.
