    Default Quinoa

    I am trying to eat healthier in hopes to feel better about myself and have more energy. My friend told me about quinoa which I guess is considered a super food. Anyways, just wondering if anyone has some good recipes that they have tried and were a hit at their house.
    Tonight I made the follwoing:
    sliced chikcen breast, spinach, mushrooms, onions, orange peppers, salt and pepper to taste and soya sauce. Fried everything in a pan and then served it on top of quinoa, so darn yummy. For breakfast yesterday I had warm quinoa with almond milk, honey and fresh fruit, so good. Lastly I made quinoa meatballs that were also a hit at our house.

    Looking forward to expanding my recipes using quinoa...

    So Very Blessed...: Cheesy Quinoa Bites

    Cheesy Quinoa Cake recipe

    I LOVED these two recipes. Not even sure which I would say was my favourite... I can taste them now and I'm a little drooly. My kids also liked them. I know two other people that made them though and gave them thumbs down, so there ya go.

    I have done the recipe on the box, with cucumbers and tomatoes and I cook it in chicken broth. Oh so good!

    We love quinoa salads here. I also make oatmeal raisin cookies and throw in 1 cup of cooked quinoa at the end before mixing it all in. They were a hit at work and DD and DH love them too. The quinoa tastes a bit crunchy like rice crispies when the cookies are cooled.
