In case you ever wondered how vegetarians manage to get all the protein they need, check out my Summer Vegetable Stir Fry with Quinoa over at Marcus Samuelsson’s blog!

I was recently contacted by the awesome folks at Buitoni letting me know about a contest they’re hosting and as soon as they did, I knew I had to let you guys in on the details.  Buitoni is the official pasta sponsor for the New York City Wine and Food Festival.  I got to go to one of the tastings at the festival last year…let’s just say I should have worn stretch pants and not skinny jeans.

Anyway, to celebrate, they are giving away two tickets to the festival as well as a trip to NYC for two, including travel and accomodations to one lucky grand prize winner!  In addition, 5 first prize winners will win a prize pack of 5 Buitoni VIP coupons!

So now I know you’re asking…how is this possible and how can I make this happen for me.  For a chance to win, Twitter followers just have to tweet @Buitoni, tag #NYCWFF #BuitoniTonight and tell or show with a picture how they beautify their meal time.  (I’ve seen your posts…I know you all have beautifying skills.)  Anyone who does so will have a chance to win!  The contest runs from now through August 26th and winners will be announced on September 5th, so get tweeting!  You can read and link to the official rules here:

    Looks summery, healthy and satisfying. I loved your post on Samuelson’s blog! Your mom is a kick. My friend who’s a vegetarian always has to tell her mom, “I dont eat anything with a face.” That helps her. 😉

  24. Lyndsey says:

    I do like using quinoa, usually in a salad for my lunch! Or I will add it with some whole grains. It is so nice getting new ways to use it.

  25. That a beautiful meatless dish! Love all the summer goodness packed into it.

    That picture legitimately looks like art, the colors are incredible. My mom always told me that healthy plates are colorful plates. Indeed indeed.

  31. Elizabeth says:

    As a vegetarian myself, quinoa is pretty baller.
