    quinoa recipes

    I haven't tried Quinoa but looking for some different recipes. Does anyone have any quinoa breakfast recipes? Can quinoa be added to other foods? Thank you

    We eat quinoa a lot. I can be cooked and used in most recipes in lieu of rice and sometimes pasta. I usually saute some garlic in olive oil, "toast" the quinoa a bit, and then cook it in chicken stock. I have served it with tomato sauce and a fried egg, with an eggplant tomato sauce, as a cold salad with dried cranberries, feta and a light citrus vinaigrette. Very easy. There's a good looking recipe in this month's Endurance Magazine (here.

    I've not tried it for breakfast, but a google search of "quinoa breakfast" turned up some good looking recipes.

    We eat a ton of quinoa (I'm a vegetarian, and it's a higher-protein grain than most). I like to cook up a plain batch and then keep it around for lots of different preparations: toss a handful into salad, make a porridge (with cinnamon, almond milk, fruit & nuts), or use it in place of any other grain.

    My favourite quinoa salad is a version of tabouli (here's the recipe) -- it uses tons of lemon and is so delicious!

    I also have made them into veggie burger patties -- YUM, especially in a pita.

    Hi linzq,
    Thanks for sharing wheatberry salad recipe with everyone. I have checked the links and found chickpeas out of stock so will try wheatberry salad later.

    Love quinoa. A favorite dinner recipe is to cook the quinoa in some chicken broth with lemon pepper seasoning. Then toss in chunks of chicken breasts and green peas with even more lemon pepper seasoning to satisfy my need for a good pepper burn. There's a quinoa salad recipe floating about my google reader somewhere. I think it has black beans, quinoa, diced jalapeno peppers, cilantro, a red pepper, lemon juice, salt and olive oil involved in it.

    Another thing I used to do with it was to cook it into a porridge then blitz 1/4 cup of the porridge with a frozen banana and 4 or 5 whole strawberries. And maybe a squirt of chocolate syrup. I'm not admitting to anything. It makes a fantastic breakfast smoothie.
