There is a recipe on the back of the box and several more inside. I tried several and they were all delicious. We even like to eat it like oatmeal in the morning. I'm not much into "new wave" food, but this is a winner.
Amazon has the BEST deal on quinoa around--12 boxes of this stuff for $25. Sure, it's almost twice as expensive as brown rice, but it's worth it!
Did I mention that quinoa cooks in less than 15 minutes?? Try that with brown rice (and without pressure cooking, cheaters)!
Substitute quinoa for any rice dish. I make spanish rice with quinoa (the 'rice' becomes a misnomer). Same thing for black beans and rice. This stuff's delicious and well textured!
Anyway, spread the word about this thing--it really needs to be a bigger staple in the american diet, along with rice and pasta!!
It is way too over priced though. Even the way over priced Bob's Red Mill brand is quite a bit cheaper. Quinoa of this quality should not cost more than $3.99/lb. If you live near a Trader Joe's or a good bulk food store get your quinoa there. Currently, here on Amazon, Arrowhead Mills comes in at about that price if you sign up for Subscribe & Save but I've heard that it is not as well rinsed which would be a problem quality wise. Eden quinoa costs over $4/lb here but is still cheaper than Bob's Red Mill or Ancient Harvest.
So quality wise I'd give this 5 stars but because of the poor price/value I give it 1 star, hence the 3 star review.
This is a nutty tasting uniquely colored, delicious, whole food that has a centuries old history.
I like eating it in different ways:
1) A like quinoa as a side dish. It takes sauces very well.
2) I like it cold to add bulk to the salad. My favorite is to mix it with spinach with tangy dressing.
3) I like as a home-made cereal in the morning. I add frozen fresh berries which I defrost in the microwave just until they are slightly warm.
4) Quinoa has fiber to bulk up stool, and phosphorus to stimulate bowel movement. If you combine it with prunes as your morning cereal you get a real cleansing effect!
Here is my favorite recipe for this treat - tasty and effective.
1 cup of water
1/2 cup quinoa
1 pinch of nutmeg
1 tsp graded ginger
1/3 cup of chopped prunes
1/4 cup rice milk
Bring the water, quinoa, nutmeg and ginger to boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 10 minutes. Then stir in the prunes and rice milk. Cover again and cook for 5 more minutes.
Quinoa naturally grows with a bitter layer of saponins, to remove the bitter test Quinoa is pre-washed before packaging to remove the bitter shell. I was pleased with Ancient Harvest quality, I did not detect any bitterness in their quinoa.
Amazon deal on the 12 box of quinoa is very good but you get a lot! If you are thinking of trying it for the first time I recommend trying one box at a more expensive price to see if you like and if you like it go with the 12 box size order. I have bought different versions of Quinoa at a local Trader Joe's and Whole Foods at about $4 a box.
Ali Julia review
For breakfast add fruit and perhaps some honey or Stevia.
For other meals try using a dressing of olive oil, crushed garlic, crushed red pepper flakes. And throw something like goats cheese, or a few shrimp, or some shreds of chicken, or avocado into the mix. Top with chopped spring onion and cilantro. Yum!
Quinoa is a perfectly balanced food that is incredibly good for you.
If you want to lose weight but not be hungry, this stuff is for you.
