    Your recipe looks great. I made a quinoa dish in the crock pot one Sunday afternoon. I thought it was so good, but the kids acted like I was poisoning them. So I haven’t made it since, but now your recipe has me thinking back to those flavors…

    You gotta’ love kids!! I’ve never tried quinoa in the CrockPot but I’m sure it turns out beautifully – you can make it in a rice cooker, too.

    That recipe looks so good! I have been wanting buy try and make quinoa for a while but have been putting it off. I just bought a rice cooker last weekend so I no longer have an excuse not to try it!

    I’ve never tried quinoa, but you’ve convinced me I must. I have several recipes fpr Israeli couscous in which quinoa could be substituted. Thanks. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

    Quinoa is probably my favorite grain… I absolutely LOVE it. Thanks for posting your recipe!

    It’s easy to love, isn’t it? It would be fun to compile lots of quinoa recipes to help people that are new to this fabulous grain. (Tells you a lot about my idea of fun, huh?)

    My husband and I love quinoa…use it for everything we would use rice for. Also, just had it for lunch…mixed with tuna and mayonnaise instead of a tuna sandwich. Very tasty!

    That does sound good. I never thought of using it in a tuna sandwich…I’m going to try that sometime.

    Not so much in a tuna sandwich…more instead of the bread.

    LOL!! I meant a tuna salad. My brain…

    That’s a very tasty looking quinoa dish, Amy! We really enjoy quinoa every time I make it, but it’s not carried in our local grocery store. So I just have to remember to stock up when I am in town. Luckily, the folks in our support group either live in town or travel a lot, so we have quinoa dishes a lot at our meetings. Last month, one of the members made quinoa pudding with agave. It was like rice pudding with raisins and quite good. :-)

    I make a quinoa pudding just like that and just put it on my schedule to post sometime in the next couple of weeks. I had hope that I’d come up with something original. I have to laugh at myself. :)

    I’ve got a box of quinoa in the cupboard I’ve been wondering what to do with – I’ll give this a try!

    @Amy,
    Trying to use up some zucchini from the garden right now. We gave this meal a shot and it was really, really good. But you already know that ;)

    My family eats quinoa, but they are not thrilled with it so I don’t fix it as often as I would like. They prefer it mixed with rice. Your recipe looks great.

    Hi Amy — I stumbled upon your blog over a week ago as I was blog hopping and just wanted to thank you for all the great recipes and information you provide! I also love how you offer links to other recipes at other blogs! I bough some quinoa awhile back and have yet to try it — can’t wait now.

    I am wheat-free due to having asthma, which it seems to seriously affect. I wish more parents knew of this asthma/wheat link, as so many children today are diagnosed with asthma.

    Thanks again for such a great blog!

    Dee :D

    Thank you so much. I genuinely appreciate your feedback. It’s nice to know that what I do has an impact.

    I didn’t know about the asthma/wheat link but I’m not surprised to hear that it affects you. Kudos to you for finding a solution and sticking with it!

    Oh, man. I have happily avoided quinoa since I first hear of it about a hear ago. Just so… different. But now… maybe I should try it. :)

    I am usually stand-offish about new foods. I’ve gotten better at trying new things and have been pleasantly surprised. I think it would fit in your trying to eat healthier profile.

    I made this for breakfast yesterday. It’s delicious and I savored every bite! It doesn’t take as long to make as one might think. I ate the rest of it today and I loved it! Thank you Amy!

    Just made this and I love it! Just wondering, do you think I could freeze the extra? It’s just me and the hubby, so we made a good dent, but there’s a lot leftover!

    Amy Reply:

    @Lina, Sure. You can freeze almost anything…I usually add a little water or chicken stock when reheating a frozen grain. Glad you like it. :)

    This is bar none one of the best things I have ever put in my mouth. I was completely surprised and EXTREMELY happy that this recipe makes a lot. I had never had Quinoa before and I am a complete convert. I love it!
