So you’ve decided to try quinoa. What can you do with it? A better question might be—what can’t you do with it?! Quinoa is a versatile grain-like “seed” that cooks up light and fluffy, with a slightly nutty, mild flavor. It can be used just like rice, as a side dish or combined with other ingredients to create a pilaf or even a main course. I like to make a couple of cups at a time and use my cooked quinoa in various recipes throughout the week. Here are a few of my favorites.
If you’re following a specialty diet, you might think you’ll be staring at an empty plate during Passover. But there’s no reason to starve for eight whole days!
My husband’s new eating plan prompted me to seek out new ways to prepare our family’s favorite Passover dishes. I found out that with a few clever substitutions, you can still enjoy all the traditional fare! (Gluten-free matzo ball soup, anyone?)
New to quinoa? This easy-to-make pilaf combines everyone’s favorite fluffy, nutty-tasting grain with a combination of wild, brown and black rice and flavorful veggies including artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes and kale. Serve a scoop with your main entrée, or top with cashew cream and diced avocado for a meal in itself!
Most stuffed mushrooms are smothered by a heavy layer of melted cheese, but these tasty caps contain only a light mixture of quinoa, fresh veggies and a trio of healthy seeds (hemp, chia and sesame). Just scoop, fill and bake for an irresistible appetizer that not only tastes great but is great for you!
We all have dietary restrictions of some kind. Whether we’re looking for raw food recipes or just want a dish low in sodium, the search can be treacherous or, worse…tasteless! These quinoa cakes are full of flavor. Even better, they cater to vegan, gluten-free, low-sodium and low-sugar diets.
Magnesium is a mineral that’s essential for more than 300 different functions within the body, from bone formation and nerve function to muscle contraction and protein production. Back in 2000, the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that as many as 80% of American adults don’t get enough of this important mineral.
So, how can you be sure you’re getting enough? You can always try a high-quality supplement…or, you can start by adding one of these seven healthy foods to your diet:
