Quinoa Recipes

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 enjoy recipes featuring whole quinoa, there are also other forms of quinoa available. Keep an eye out for quinoa flakes, popped/puffed quinoa as well as quinoa flour. All are delicious, interesting, and easy to incorporate into your cooking.
