Re: Quinoa recipes

I just cook it in the rice cooker with veggie broth instead of water, and I add garlic powder, salt, pepper, onion powder bell peppers and cilantro. Delicious

Re: Quinoa recipes

I love this one. I just leave out the frozen green beans.

Re: Quinoa recipes

I just cook it in veggie broth and add ground black pepper, sun dried tomatoes and toasted pine nuts. I works well as side dish or cold salad the next day.

just until all of the broth is absorbed, toasting it does not really change the cook time much, just gives it a deeper flavor.

This is by far my (and my family's) favorite way to eat quinoa. I've even made this for very picky, non-whole-foods eaters, and they've all loved it, too.

I make it just like the recipe says, with one addition. After the onions and garlic (does the recipe call for garlic, or is that my addition, too?) are cooked, I add the dry quinoa and "toast" it for a few minutes before adding the broth. I've found that this helps reduce the bitterness of the quinoa. Oh, and I also use a little extra cumin.

I love this recipe!

Yum. Maybe this will be dinner tonight!

Re: Quinoa recipes

My girls' favorites are:

1) quinoa with black beans, chickpeas, almonds, kidney beans, corn, and curry powder to taste

2) quinoa salad--red quinoa, grapes, chickpeas, golden raisins, cilantro, dried cranberries, and whatever else you want to throw in!

Quinoa is a staple at our house--it's so easy to just throw things in and make a meal. Just use whatever you have around!!

I made this last week and it was so yummy! I was worried about DH liking it, but he said it was really good. Thanks!
