Quails with rustic potatoes and asparagus

This recipe was inspired by Charlie, a very talented chef from Montreal. And if you are reading this - thank you! You've been nothing but awesome! 
So, let's start with quails... 
Not much to do there, but basically I rubbed the poor little birds with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl I mixed olive oil with fresh rosemary and garlic. Brushed the birds with it and put them in the oven for 20 min, just until they are cooked through. Do not over cook them!! The last 5 min was on broiler, so they get nice colour on them. 
Potatoes were treated pretty much the same way. Asparagus I cooked in the same baking dish after the potatoes were done but I added some red wine vinegar to it, so it still has its crunch and a little bit of sourness at the same time.

Cottage cheesecake

Well, I just can't find a correct word to describe it... Super healthy perfection? Just to sum up, it makes 7-8 servings and it's only 3 gr of fat, 3 gr of sugar, 16 gr of Protein and 13 gr of carbs per serving. The only thing I can say - Where have you been all my life?! I'm in love! ❤️. 
Here is the recipe... 
1 cup of whole grain oats 
3 large eggs
1 container (500 gr) of 0,5% cottage cheese
1/2 cup almond milk (or regular)
1/4 cup 1% Greek yogurt 
1 tbs baking powder
1/4 cup coconut shavings
1 tbs vanilla extract 
3 tsp stevia 

Preheat the oven to 350F (180 C)
Put oats in a blender and press the button until it becomes oat flour. Take 1/3 cup out and set aside. 
Put the rest of the flour in a big bowl, add 2 eggs, almond milk, 1 tbs stevia. Mix well, pour the mixture into a baking dish. I did spray it with a little bit of oil.
Put in in the oven for 10-15 min. 
Meanwhile, mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, including the 1/3 cup of oat  flour, 1 egg, the rest of stevia, coconut, vanilla, baking powder, Greek yogurt and cottage cheese. 
In 10-15 min when the base is set, take it out of the oven and pour the cottage cheese mixture on the base, spread it evenly and put it back in the oven for another 30 minutes. 
Let it sit for a bit before serving but OMG it's delish! Let me know how it went! Yummy, right?!

Quinoa risotto

Hey! It's been a while!!! 
Sorry for not posting new recipes for a while but I was busy. You know how life gets in a way. Well, I am happy to say that I am eating very healthy and I work out a lot. So, for those of you who is still interested in my blog... There is going to be a ton of healthy recipes. Here we go...
I love quinoa and it's packed with good stuff! 
1/4 of big white onion - chopped
1/2 cup dry quinoa
4 portobello mushroom caps
Kale (as much as you want)
1 cup milk (I don't eat dairy, so I used almond milk) 
1-2  chicken breasts
1 tbs Garlic powder 
Black pepper and salt to taste

Start with heating a frying pan, throw chopped onion in there. Yep, that's right no oil or butter! 
As soon as the opinion starts being soft, add 1/4 cup of water. Cut up chicken breasts and add to the onions. Keep your eye on it, give it 30-40 seconds and add quinoa. Pour 1 1/2 cups of water in the pan, cover and turn the heat down to medium-low. 
Quinoa will absorb all the water after 10-15 minutes, when it happens add milk, cut up portobello and cut up kale, stir, add garlic powder, salt and pepper, stir again and put the lid back on for another 5-7 minutes. TaDaa! Enjoy! 😉
