Yup. Got too much at Costco but amazing stuff.


Needs a lot of taste help.


Any Gurus have some go to quinoa recipes?


I can offer that I make it like oatmeal with the usual adds to oatmeal and can get a pretty good taste.


I have use it as a filler for various pressure cooker recipes.


Tired the toasting it in a dry skillet.  That was barely helpful.

Quite often we use it instead of rice, I've made jambalaya with it, or just use it as a bed for stir fry and made pilaf.  Definitely rinse it first or it will taste soapy. Probably our go to is Quinoa Mac and Cheese, minus the mac.  This isn't a recipe so much as a loose guide.

Brown 1-2 pounds of burger.

Prepare 1.5 cups of quinoa, we usually simmer in 3 cups of chicken broth for like 20 minutes, until liquid is absorbed. 

Then we either go with kind of a Mexican flavor or straight up with veggies.

For mexican I mix the prepped quinoa with the burger, 1 egg, 1 cup of milk, can of rinsed black beans, can of rotel or diced tomatoes, cup of frozen corn, couple of dried chilis or some red pepper flakes to taste, also salt and pepper to taste, maybe 1 teaspoon, 2 cups of shredded cheese, pour into 9x13 pan and then put a cup or so shredded cheese over the top and bake for 35 minutes at 350, or until the cheese starts to brown.

For regular, mix the burger, quinoa, 1 egg, 1 cup milk, veggies of your choice, we usually do broccoli, some carrot slices, bell peppers, some spicier peppers if you like, crumbled bacon would work well, 2 cups of cheese, mix and add to 9x13 pan, cup or so of shredded cheese on top and bake for 35 minutes at 350 until it browns to your liking.

Hope those would work for you!

Will try the Mexican mix. . Thanks.


Been using my electric pressure cooker to make basic quinoa.  Have not been rinsing so I need to do that-never got the soapy taste, maybe lucking out,  but the basic quinoa needs taste help: the Mexican mix will take care of that.


Quinoa blends with cinnamon and brown sugar well, and we sometimes just mix some baked  apples in as well, as a side. Leftovers are good for an oatmeal substitute. My wife says no to that.


-have used it a filler with mixed results.  -may try it with some wild rice and some other spices.
