Tasty Tuesday - Clean Eating Dinner

Tosca Reno first came into our life via the Eat Clean for Families cookbook.
It's awesome!

Tonight I cleaned up our dinner with two Clean Eating recipes.
Quinoa & Cranberries - Super Yum!
CE Porkchops
Cucumber Salad

Oh Yummers!
I could eat the Quinoa dish all. day.

Of course, we had to "force" Rhett to eat it. That cutie does not like to try new foods and it drives me bonkers. But that's another post.

Quinoa & Cranberries
1 1/2 cup quinoa - soak in metal seive/strainer while prepping, then rinse well with cold water
1/2 cup raw almonds
2 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Place almonds in food processor & whiz until fine. Transfer to small bowl & set aside.
Place quinoa in water & bring to a boil. Reduce heat & simmer, covered, for several minutes. Add almonds, almond milk, cranberries, lemon zest and pumpkin pie spice. Let mixture cook over low heat, stirring until it thickens. Remove from heat, let sit covered for a few minutes. Use a fork to fluff grains.

CE Porkchops
4 porkchops - defrost and trim fat.
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp coarse pepper
1/3 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 TBsp dijon mustard
1/3 almond milk

Lightly spray skillet with non stick spray. On med-high heat add pork chops, sprinkle with salt & pepper. Flash brown chops. 5 min each side. Remove and place in warmed oven to keep warm.
Add broth, mustard and milk to skillet. Simmer 7 min. Thicken and spoon over chops.
