Guess who loves quinoa

Posted by   + Show Post

My children!!!!  My son asked to have it as a side dish.  Then my daughter had 3rds.  It was just plain cooked as the package directed served like rice.

Prepared according to directions (2:1 water to qunioa). Then served bowl style with blackbeans, fresh pico de gallo, cooked mushrooms/onions, seasoned tofu, homemade spicy cilantro lime vinaigrette, topped with diced cucumbers, and nutritional yeast. I actually took pictures last night because I was showing difference to someone from the vegan quinoa one, and the not vegan rice version.

Regular rice style (this was hubby's):

Tried it at a buffet once and it was alright. Just like rice, so I'd eat it again.

Mine are naturally programmed to eat healthy.  They love fruits and veggies too.

Lucky! I have made healthy home cooked meals and snacks every day for 4 years and it is still a struggle at mealtimes! They would rather just not eat than try something 'weird'. The list of foods they simply wont eat is loooong. I don't cater to them. They eat what I make or they don't eat. I do make sure there is at least one thing on the plate they like ( apple slices or carrots and dip) but sometimes they won't eat that either! It's frustrating.

My 6 year old daughter tried it even before I ever did in school.  So ever since she's been begging for me to buy some.  I finally did this weekend.  Now looking for some good recipes. She said in school they put syrup on it - sounds kind of gross to me but we'll see.  :)expecting baby

I could see adding the syrup to make it sweet for breakfast  like oatmeal.
