Do you know any good recipes for quinoa?

Question by DeeDee: Do you know any good recipes for quinoa?
I like buying quinoa, since it’s very healthy and cheap, but I don’t know any good recipes for it. My dishes end up being pretty bland.

Do you have any flavourful recipes for quinoa? Typing them here or providing links are both fine. Thanks!

dessert quinoa. I would prepare the quinoa. Then add a bunch of honey, cinnamon and crushed walnuts. refrigerate. Simple and really good.

  1. Quinoa, halved grape tomatoes, feta cheese, parsley, red onions and a good balsamic vinegar dressing.

    You can add chicken to it too.

  2. Quinoa stir fry

    1 cup quinoa
    2 cups stock
    6 oz fresh spinach
    1/2 cup chopped toasted nuts
    1/4 cup shredded cheese
    1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes

    Toast quinoa in dry skillet until golden and fragrant-add stock, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer ~20 min until liquid absorbed. Stir in spinach and cook just til wilted-add nuts, cheese and tomato, warm through.
    This dish is very flexible-you can add any herbs and spices desired to compliment the nuts and cheese you choose. I have used pecans, almonds, pumpkin seeds, cashews/parmesan, gruyere, smoked gouda, asiago-the results are always delightful. I have also added different vegetables in addition to or in place of the spinach, but in my opinion the tomato is essential.
    I also like to saute mushrooms, shallots and garlic then add my quinoa and liquid and cook. Toss cooked quinoa with brown sugar, place under the broiler just until sugar melts and it’s a wonderful topping for ice cream or yogurt. Use quinoa in place of pasta for your favorite pasta salad recipe. Add some to your favorite soup recipe. I used to eat it in the morning with shredded cheese and chopped canadian bacon mixed in-now I use scrambled eggs instead of bacon (vegetarian).

  3. if your recipes using quinoa are bland, try toasting it in a pan until golden brown before using. makes a huge difference in taste.
