Spiced Quinoa

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
Absolutely loved this recipe as is. We had it with chicken that I had seasoned with the same spices as the quinoa mix except I used garlic powder for minced garlic. Then for lunch the next day I put it in a bed of rocket, swiss chard and kale. Really great both days. This will be a staple.

Quinoa Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
From a nutritional stand point this dish is amazing. It's packed with protein, but you feel like you are carb loading. A win-win for a pre-diabetic fitness freak like me. However, as written it's a bit of a snooze flavor-wise. Luckily you can jazz it up easily with stuff you probably have lying around. First thing, it's screaming for acid. I used fresh squeezed lemon. Next it needs some seasoning. Salt, of course, onion powder and garlic powder as well for me. I ended up tossing in yellow, red, & orange bell peppers because I had some I needed to use. You easily could leave them out & have it be just as good though. I also added a little extra oil since I used a full cup of quinoa which I prepared with vegetable stock rather than water.
