QUINOA                        QUINOA                       EXCITING GRAIN  

Quinoa is easy to  use, can be made quickly and you can use it in place of rice, bulgur or pastas. 

Quinoa has health benefits, protein, amino acids, minerals, calcium and phosphates.  


2 cups cooked quinoa
1/2 cup flour
2 beaten eggs 
2/3 cup soy or  ordinary milk.  Mix all and  lightly fry in a little olive oil  Turn gently and do both sides. drain on paper and serve with vegetables or a salad.

QUINOA as a base for a quiche, or vegetable  pie or simply to add to a omlette. You can stir fry vegetables, add crushed cashew nuts, a few  sunflower seeds and make a mix of all these with cooked quinoa. 

I use quinoa with curry , turmeric and chopped parsley, chopped red peppers and  sprinkle all with coconut and raisins. Makes a quick easy dish for work or evening meal.

Remember you can use it for Tabouli and for a replacement for Pasta.

I will post more recipes in a few dyas   have a good week.
