Quinoa Couscous

Introduction

The night before my birthday, my husband and I went to our friend Leisha and Nina's house for a wonderful family dinner. Even their dog Hero (pictured above) joined us. Leisha made Quinoa Couscous, Red Cabbage, Apple, Carrot and Ginger slaw as well as this amazing thick Beet Soup. Everything was so insanely yummy! Definitely Superhero fare. So I just wanted to give a big thank you to Leisha and Nina for having us over, and share with everyone just how easy it is to make some really delicious superhero recipes. Hope you enjoy as much as I did! The night before my birthday, my husband and I went to our friend Leisha and Nina's house for a wonderful family dinner.
