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.
So, in my new love of quinoa I’ve compiled a list of healthy and simple quinoa recipes….I hope you enjoy them!
