Quinoa is a food that you may want to try as you are preparing food for your family and friends. It is a versatile food that can be enjoyed at any meal of the day.
Basic Quinoa Recipe
Basic quinoa recipe is the easiest technique that you can try on. Dispense water and quinoa into a pot and allow it to simmer. It will probably take about fifteen minutes. A change in quinoa’s color from white to translucent will tell you that it is already done.
A well-known Italian dish named Lasagnequinoa is also a quinoa recipe, but this time with a twist. You must start by stir-frying onions and garlic using an olive oil. Hamburger should be cooked until it is already brown in color; after this, add in some tomatoes and tomato sauce. Oregano and salt will make it even more appetizing. Place it into a 350-degree preheated toaster oven after allowing it to seethe. Put the sauce into your baking dish and then add in cheese and cooked quinoa. Finally, you may complement the recipe by adding parmesan cheese on the topmost layer.
Quinoa Cheese Puffs
Cheese puffs is another scrumptious toaster oven formulae for quinoa. Fresh quinoa or quinoa flour may be used for this recipe. Supplement it with dairy products like butter. Milk and egg are added to make it healthier. Then finally, pleat in the grated cheese. Use a greased muffin tin and bake in a 425 degree oven for about fifteen minutes.
If you want an easy to prepare dessert, quinoa pudding recipe is a good option. All you need to do is mix all the ingredients. Our main ingredient is cooked quinoa. Brown sugar, ground almonds or walnuts, and vanilla are used as sweeteners and flavors for our pudding. Shredded coconut and orange grind, being good fruits gives of additional nutritive value. You will also want to add in milk, an egg, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Afterwards, pour it into a baking plate in advance of putting it into preheated toaster stove for 45 minutes. It is the taster who will decide if whether he wants the pudding hot or cold.

Image by Sakurako Kitsa I don't really have a name for this dish, but it's ridiculously photogenic and crazy-versatile. It's also about as healthy as you can get. You can serve it cold like pasta salad, you can eat it over actual salad, you can heat it and roll it up in tortillas, you can stuff peppers with it and bake them, you can throw it in chicken stock and make fantastic soup with it. I try to cook a big batch of it once a week. Usually I eat it with a big dollop of Wholly Guacamole and tortilla chips. You can make a smaller batch to try it out, then make more if you like it. It's easy to adjust the portion size. Boil two cups of water or chicken stock in a saucepan. Add a cup of quinoa and return to a boil for a minute or two. Turn heat to low and cover tightly with lid; steam until light and fluffy. At the same time, heat a can of corn in one saucepan and a can of rinsed black beans in another. I suppose you could just dump them out of the can into the quinoa, but I take the extra step to make sure it's safe. After the corn and the beans come to a brief boil, I drain them and add them to the quinoa, tossing the mixture gently with a wooden spoon so the beans don't mash. Transfer to a bowl (I use a metal one so it will chill quickly), keep in the fridge till cold. In the meantime, wash three bunches of green onions. Feel up the stalk until you find the point where it loses its firmness and turns into floppy leaves- it's usually three or four inches up the stalk. Cut off the top part and discard. Cut off the root ends and discard, then chop the rest. Set aside. Wash and halve a red and an orange bell pepper. Store half of each color for later (you can stuff them!). Dice the remaining half. Take chilled quinoa from fridge and stir in veggies. Taste for seasoning and add salt or lime juice. I usually add sea salt and a big squeeze of lime. And that's where this vegetarian gets her protein!
