This summer dish works well as a main meal or side and can be meal prepped by cooking the pasta beforehand, in addition to chopping your veggies and roasting the corn.Citrus Herb Quinoa SaladQuinoa is one of our favorite grains to meal prep because it's a great source of plant protein, is gluten free, high in fiber, and contains loads of vitamins.

A great mom hack to get around that is to mash up raspberries in its place, and the combo is just as delicious! These muffins can be made with or without egg to accommodate our vegan friends (the middle may sink a bit but still as delicious!), and are dairy free + gluten free as well. To our friends with nut allergies, sunflower seed butter can also be used (just be aware that when sunflower seed butter is baked, it may turn green when it reacts with the baking soda!)

We then filled it with dye-free natural chocolate gems, used plant-based dye-dree superfood powders to naturally color our frosting, and dug in!!Cheddar Broccoli Quinoa MuffinsThese kid-friendly vegetarian quinoa bites can be made three ways: baking in a muffin tin, frying into patties, or using an ebelskiver pan to make round balls (view all options in the photo gallery at the bottom of the recipe page).

We usually cook the stew first (either in the crockpot or on the stove) and grill chicken in a separate pan, which can then be incorporated into the stew for those who prefer the meat addition.Carrot Cake Breakfast CookiesThese naturally sweetened gluten-free cookies are perfect for sneaking veggies in without even tasting it!
