Do you have a recipe for quinoa?

Question by Angeline L: Do you have a recipe for quinoa?
So, I buy a box of quinoa from a store in a larger town and now I want to use it, only I have no idea what to do with it. To put things in perspective, I plan on making steak and chicken kebobs, spinach salad with lemon vinagrette and fruit skewers for desert. I figured a dish/salad (I will substitute the spinach salad if I must) with quinoa/couscous would work nicely.

So… do you have a nice recipe for quinoa/couscous that’s either a cool salad or a warm, yummy dish that I can prepare for us tonight?

My wife and I cook it all sorts of ways. It is a very versatile side dish. Plain w/ just a little salt and pepper is ok. The recipe we have been using as of late is very simple, yet tasty. All we do is cook the quinoa and when it is done, stir in a can of Rotel. Are you familiar w/ this? It’s diced tomatoes, onions, garlic, jalepenos, and spices. It adds a quick, tasty spruce-up to the dish. good luck

  1. The best quinoa dish I ever made was with black beans and corn. You can find that recipe link below. I also made a wonderful pilaf which I got from a spa site. That recipe link is below, as well. Good luck!

  2. Quinoa (“kee-noir”) can be prepared in any of the ways you might prepare rice. You want to rinse it a couple times like rice, too, because the outside can harbor a bitter taste. The EASIEST by far way to make a yummy quinoa dish is to put the grains in 1.5 times as much chicken or vegetable stock (ie 1 cup quinoa to 1.5 cups stock) and simmer it gently for about 15-20 minutes.

    Bon appetit!
