I sometimes feel like quinoa has a reputation of being bland and boring. So i put together this roundup of 13 Magical Quinoa Recipes to prove that that definitely is not the case. These are recipes that I love and enjoy, Recipes I make regularly and recipes that I use for meal prep and as a lighter base to bulk out meals.
My love of quinoa knows no bounds. It is my favourite grain. Please don’t tell my first love – rice. It came as a surprise to me because I really hated quinoa for a very long time. I was like what is this seedy nonsense getting stuck into my teeth.
Now.. I make it ALL THE TIME. In various ways. Multiple times a week and sometimes every day.
I love Quinoa because is gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant based foods that contain all nine essential amino acids and you know that I am making a point of eating more plants. Quinoa is a seed, which is prepared and eaten similarly to a grain. The other thing I love about quinoa is that it takes on flavour realllllllly well.
It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E and various beneficial antioxidants.
So here army fave ways to eat Quinoa..I have a feeling that I will be adding to this list forever.
