Recipe: www.healthyveganrecipes.net This vegetarian quinoa recipe uses quinoa, a grain with a very good amino acid profile. This means that it is a good source of vegan protein. The protein content of quinoa is not as high as a bean, but because it contains all the essential amino acids it is a valuable part of a vegan diet. The lime really makes the quinoa sing.

Madhava Organic Light Agave Nectar- Case of Six 46 Oz Bottles- Vegan, Vegetarian Sweetener- Honey, Sugar, Syrup Substitu
Agave Nectar is the perfect sweetener choice for vegans, vegetarians and raw / living food diets. It can be used in place of honey, corn syrup & maple syrup. It can be substituted for sugar in most recipes. Agave is sweeter than sugar, so generally 2/3 cups of agave replace 1 cup of sugar. Experiment to taste. It is certified organic, 100% pure and contains no animal products of any kind.
Made from the Agave Salmiana (not the Blue Agave) that grows in the high desert regions of central Mexico. Agave nectar has a low glycemic index of 32. Compare to 58 for honey and 64 for table sugar. Agave has the same calories as honey, but as most folks find it to be sweeter less is needed. In such a case, less calories are consumed.
