20 Healthy and Simple Quinoa Recipes

Healthy and Simple Quinoa Recipes

Last week I shared with you my new obsession with quinoa.  I know, I’m a little late to jump on the quinoa band wagon…truth be told I was holding out and refusing to jump onto the most current food fad.  I really thought that quinoa was going to taste like cardboard and would fade out as quickly as it jumped on the foodie scene.  But, Hubs and I tried quinoa for the first time a few weeks ago and we were shocked….when cooked properly it tastes really good!

The key to cooking quinoa is making sure that you don’t overcook it and turn it into mush.  Plus, you have to pair it with the right flavors to give it the kick it needs.  If you’ve never had quinoa and are just starting out, like us, it’s got a great earthy nutty taste.  The easiest way I have found to cook it is in my Garlic Parmesan Simple Quinoa Recipe— it’s quick, simple, and the flavors are delicious…it’s pretty fool proof.

Here is my favorite new cookbook this month….it’s 75 Tried and True Freezer Meals from Six Sisters Stuff….I’m always looking for super simple recipes and this cookbook is packed full of them!  It’s only 4.99 and worth every penny!!

75 of the best freezer meals

Bye for now! Where I Shop- (1)
Thrive Market - It's like the Costco of organics...this is where I get all of my sugar, flour, baking supplies, kids snacks, etc.
Zaycon Foods- This is where I buy most of my meat products in bulk.  The quality is amazing and the prices just can't be beat!  I mean, $1.89 a pound for boneless all-natural chicken breasts!!  It is bulk but you can always split with a friend or make up a bunch of freezer meals like I do!
