    :chef:This thread is specifically for Quinoa (pronounced Keen-wa). I love it as its so healthy for you. Gluten free and is easy to fix.

    Anyone may add recipes, as we'd all love to learn from others.:)

    Basic recipe for cooking Quinoa.

    All recipes basically call for cooked Quinoa, so to cook it add 2 cups water to 1 cup Quinoa. Use a pan or some are using the rice cooker in the microwave. Bring to boil and let boil until the water is gone. Fluff.

    There is a tiny ring around the grain. This will separate as it cooks. It's perfectly natural and is not to be removed. You try removing thousands of tiny rings.

    You can buy Quinoa from health food stores or departments. I have also seen it in the baking aisle with the specialty flours. Wal-mart carries it in this aisle.
    Bob's Red Mill is one brand, there are a couple of others too. I buy it on ebay. it costs about 6.00 a pound.

    I am not affiliated with any Quinoa board or do I profit from Quinoa sales in any way. I just am thrilled with a high quality, tasty, natural food.

    this is a recipe I have made dozens of times. I also like to add broccoli, carrots and peas to it.

    the pictures are very nice to familiarize yourself with Quinoa

    **note, the recipe as listed calls for 4 cups broth. Cut it to 2. You can add more later if it becomes too dry, but it will be mushy if you use too much too soon.

    this is a favorite at church potlucks for me.

    mmm, we really like quinoa. Which reminds me, we haven't had it in quite a while. Not all the stores carry it around here, so I forget to buy it when we run out.

    I will have to look up some of my recipes.
