Pork Tenderloin with Roasted Veggie Quinoa & Pineapple Salsa

Happy Monday, friends! I hope it’s been a good one so far πŸ™‚

Its a very rainy day here today, but my meal prep was definitely a spot of brightness! I actually used a Mason Woodruff recipe for the pork and salsa and paired it with my veggie quinoa to make a delicious, satisfying meal! It also came together so easily and my crock pot did most of the work.

Here’s some tips for you:

  • for the pork: I followed Mason’s recipe almost exactly! I halved the pork recipe and cooked it in my small crockpot for about 2 hours and it was perfect. I couldn’t find jerk seasoning so I used a comparable one and it was absolutely delicious
  • for the salsa: YUM. I made the whole recipe even though I made a half recipe of the pork and I’m so glad I did, it’s perfect. just make sure you cut the veg up into very small pieces so that every bite gets a bit of everything
  • for the veggie quinoa: roasted veg + quinoa + green onions = deliciousness. You can absolutely switch up the veggies that you use for whatever you’ve got on hand or particularly like! it’s the perfect pairing for the pork and the sweet salsa

That’s all I’ve got! Short, sweet, and delicious πŸ™‚
