 Anyone have any good quinoa recipes? I've tried this one, not bad:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chile powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook and stir for 2 minutes; add quinoa and cook and stir until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour broth into the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add curry and chile powders; cover and simmer until tender, about 25 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

list some more!

that's pretty close to what I do. I like to throw in some veggies too for flavour and texture. As far as I'm concerned broth is pretty much necessary for Quinoa.

I'm vegetarian so I replace the chicken broth with organic veggie broth :)

i add a few more veggies such as tomatoes and let some soft tofu cook in there

Mine is similar:

Onion, garlic, Celery, Red Pepper (if you got it)

Saute in a skillet.
Toss in pot with Quinoa and whatever stock you like.

Nice thing about Quinoa is that it's like a flavor sponge. I've used Cinnamon, Raisins, and Brown sugar for something sweeter (Think Breakfast). Honey and Agave are goo too.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  •  
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 8 spears fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
  • 1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
 

Directions

  1. Bring the quinoa and chicken broth to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender about 15 minutes. Turn off the heat, and let the remaining liquid absorb into the quinoa.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, onion, and red bell pepper; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the asparagus, mushrooms, raisins, and ginger; continue cooking until the asparagus is tender. Stir in the shrimp, and cook until the shrimp have turned pink and are no longer translucent in the center.
  3. Stir the lemon juice into the quinoa, then toss the quinoa with the shrimp and vegetable mixture. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.

Super easy. I use dried beans, but you could use one or two cans of beans.

Made this at work and the boys loved it.

-Garlic
-Pack frozen spinach
-Turkey Sausage (The kind that is shaped like a horse-shoe)
-2 C Quinoa
-4 C Chicken Broth/stock

Sweat onions. Add garlic and spinach (thawed and drained). Once garlic is golden, add sausage.

Once you think the sausage is done add Quinoa and broth according to pkg directions.

I added soy sauce and rice wine vin.

 Quinoa goes with everything. YOur imagination is the only thing holding you back. Play with different combos til you get what you like. I lean towards the stuff that has vinegar and shit.

I also use it as a base for my veggie burgers:

1 cup quinoa

1 medium mashed sweet potato

1-2 garlic

egg as binder

spices

form into 4 patties, put in fridge for 20-30 minutes and grill, bake or sautee.

The only Quinoa recipie I've got is for a cauliflower salad, and involves cooking it in a pressure cooker.

Quinoa 100% and Water 350% in a Pressure Cooker. 1 bar for 4 minutes

Depressure quickly(running water), drain then spread on a baking sheet you had in the freezer (stops it cooking any more).

Microplane grate some cauliflower florets 150%

Mix everything with:

diced & peeled green apple, Celery, balsamic vinegar

 

Bit different but I like it
