There is not enough space on the internet to cover how wonderful and versatile quinoa truly is. Quinoa is one of the healthiest grains out there, but it’s still not extremely common to find it as an ingredient in your everyday meals. Well, with this list of 45 Easy Quinoa Recipes for Every Meal of the Day, quinoa can now become a part of your regular meal rotation.
Quinoa has been steadily gaining popularity for a while now, but there is still a large portion of the population that hasn’t been exposed to the wonders of this food. Quinoa is completely gluten free, making it ideal for gluten free eaters and others who practice healthy eating. It’s also extremely high in protein – more so than brown rice, potatoes, and barley. This makes it an essential food for vegan and vegetarian diets. Quinoa is also extremely versatile. It can be used to replace rice or pasta in dishes, and can also be used as a base ingredient in the form of quinoa flour. There is no end to the possibilities when it comes to cooking with quinoa.
Take the time to go through this list and discover how quinoa can be added to your own favorite recipes. You might even discover some new easy quinoa recipes you never thought to try.
