Quinoa Artichoke Arugula Salad and Polenta Pizza Rounds

Quinoa Artichoke Arugula Salad and Polenta Pizza Rounds: quick, easy, healthy, filling.  Great for leftovers the next day too– toss both items together and eat hot or cold for lunch.

Quinoa, Artichoke & Arugula Salad: (love all of her quinoa recipe ideas).  Toss together cooked quinoa, red onion, arugula, canned chopped artichoke hearts, green pepper and walnuts, and drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette.

Polenta “Pizza” Rounds (also see this earlier post Lo Amo la Pizza for mini polenta pizza): “fry” polenta rounds on the skillet with olive oil and fresh garlic, and top with mozzarella cheese, a slice of tomato, a drizzling of balsamic vinegar, and a sprinkling of oregano and basil (or pick up the fresh stuff)
