Okay, so having a quinoa recipes list without mentioning cold salads is kind of like having a pasta list without mentioning sauce. Because quinoa absorbs so much moisture, it’s great for picking up flavours, particularly vinaigrettes. This makes it a great ingredient for salads and this one is definitely no exception. Arugula is peppery and delicious, capers are acidic and bursting with flavour, and both the shrimp and the quinoa drink up all those flavours for a perfectly balanced salad.
Quinoa is a very versatile little seed. These patties are a great option for vegans and people who are looking for gluten-free recipes, which is a rare find. They’re also great if you’re just looking for something new to try. They’re absolutely delicious, but they’re also high in fibre and iron, which are two things we often have trouble getting enough of.
As somebody who suffers from celiac disease, I often find it hard to find good gluten-free versions of recipes. What I prefer are recipes that are gluten-free by design, like this delicious Peruvian dessert. It’s a yummy baked pudding that you can serve warm, maybe with a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream if you prefer, and it’s gluten-free.
A super healthy savoury dessert dish and a great way to integrate fruit into your diet, this is one of our more interesting quinoa recipes. It’s not overly sweet, and is actually somewhat exotic with a bit of black pepper, which is actually a sweeter spice and goes very well with fruit. The key is using a good quality balsamic here that will add the perfect amount of sweetness and tartness to the salad.
