Here we have a number of favorite quinoa recipes in one list. Quinoa [Keen-wah] is a fantastic grain to utilize in year-round cooking. It has long been celebrated as a nutritional powerhouse - protein-rich, delicious, and charmingly versatile. I use it in soups, on salads, as a base for all sorts of quinoa bowls, and tend to use it as a nutrient-packed alternative to white rice or pasta. Bonus: It freezes beautifully. If you find you like recipes featuring whole quinoa, I'd also suggest keeping an eye out for quinoa flakes, as well as quinoa flour. They're all delicious, interesting, and easy to incorporate into your cooking.
