I have been really wanting to make quinoa after I had a few different opportunities to try it over the last year. Of course, after reading all the health benefits of it and knowing it’s a super food, I wanted to start incorporating quinoa into my families’ diet.
I had a few people asking about the recipe and I cannot really take credit as I did a google search and found an AMAZING one on Food Network.
I went ahead and made a double batch so we could have leftovers and I could add it to my salads for protein. In a double batch, the cook time definitely does double, just so you know.
Here’s what it looked like while cooking in the pot.
You can see how much it changes physically. This is boring. After adding your dressing, it’s fantastic!
It’s much prettier when all deced out in herbs and flavors.
Enjoy this as a side or a full meal! I added it to my salad the day after and because of all of the flavor, I didn’t need much dressing.
Enjoy! Share any other recipes you have tried with quinoa!
