Quinoa Salad with Black Beans and Hominy

This is closely adapted from a Giada DeLaurentis recipe, so credit goes to her. She serves it in butter lettuce cups but it can also be served as a salad and you can feel free to throw in any veggies or other add-ons like avocado that you want. To lower sodium, prepare your own beans and/or hominy instead of using canned. If using canned, make sure you rinse well. You can also replace the hominy with sweet corn.

Pea and Prosciutto Risotto

A really simple risotto bursting with fresh and clean flavors. Risotto is great to have in your back pocket- the possibilities are endless, and though the traditional version often contains a large amount of butter, it still tastes fabulous without it. I've had a lot of fun adapting risotto recipes to fit my new sparkpeople eating plan.

*note- I usually use garlic infused olive oil when making this, but if you don't have that or prefer to use fresh garlic that would taste great, and it would be fine without any kind of garlic as well if that is more your style.
