I love making this quinoa veggie slice with green goddess dressing for a family friendly dinner, make-ahead lunches, vibrant picnic food or for a nutrient rich savoury snack.
The colourful quinoa veggie slice is quick, easy and packed with nutrition. Paired perfectly with my secret Green Goddess Dressing full of fresh flavour and nutrient dense ingredients.
Using whole food ingredients this recipe is gluten free, dairy free, nut free, soy free and preservative free.
By using Active Manuka honey to naturally sweeten this recipe is refined sugar free.
This recipe provides diversity in nutritional value. Including a key macronutrients (protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats) as well as fibre, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
The quinoa veggie slice provides a great source of protein; from quinoa and eggs. With the filling providing a good serve of vegetables for fibre, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
The green goddess dressing is nutrient rich providing a fantastic source of healthy fats (thanks to avocado and extra virgin olive oil) as well as the antibacterial benefits of Manuka honey and garlic.
Green Goddess Dressing:
The Green Goddess is next level! The colour, flavour and healthy ingredients will not only nourish but add a punch of nutritional flavour to this slice, salads or your nourish bowls.
Made with whole food superfood ingredients including avocado, extra virgin olive oil and Active Manuka Honey to balance with natural sweetness and add the nutritional benefits of Manuka Honey.
I used 100% Australian Active Manuka Honey by Capilano, which is a potent superfood with naturally bioactive MGO levels. MGO levels in Manuka honey are the key component attributed to the unique antibacterial activity of Active Manuka honey.
The Capilano Active Manuka honey also has a mild, more pleasant flavour than other brands I’ve tried making it perfect to add to family dishes.
To find out more about Manuka honey head to our Satay Chicken with Coconut Cauliflower Rice recipe for why Manuka honey is great to add to your every day cooking.
What I love about this recipe is its versatility where you can substitute any of the vegetables for your favourites and what’s in season.
You can swap vegetables such as spinach, asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli, onion, mushrooms or roast pumpkin.
