Answer by digbklyn
Yes, you can freeze cooked quinoa. From spicehouse.com:
“Can make 1 lb of quinoa and freeze leftovers. Try it mixed into scrambled eggs.”
From the DallasNews: “Cut dinner prep time by freezing grains. Few people know that you can freeze grains, which turn out fluffy, not mushy, when microwaved or cooked in a pan. Try freezing cooked grains such as rice, quinoa and millet in small glass bowls to cut your dinner prep time during the week.”
From 101cookbooks.com: “I cooked off a number of different grains a couple weeks back, let them cool to room temp, packed the grains into small freezer bags, and stacked them in the freezer – quinoa, millet, and brown rice.”
