Quinoa, Only Yummy

Simple way to enjoy the healthy benefits of quinoa.

Boil 1 cup quinoa with 2 cups water (include a tsp olive oil, a little sea salt and a garlic clove). Simmer on low, cover and cook for 10-15 minutes till water absorbed.

Add diced peppers (green, red, habanero or jalapeƱo are good), corn, black beans, 1tbsp cumin, salt, pepper, chopped cilantro (to your tastes), and juice from one lime.

Great either hot or cold. During the winter, I'll even add diced sweet potatoes to the mix. Mmmmm...enjoy!


  1. Sounds tasty. We got addicted to quinoa this last year. I like how versatile it is. I'd like to figure out a good sweet recipe for breakfast. Cheers!

  2. don't forget to mention its a shampoo scent too!!

  3. Her mother contributes yummy recipes, many using quinoa.

  4. I like to make it exactly as you describe above, but top with cheddar cheese and bread crumbs and bake about 15 minutes. Quinoa is really yummy plain, in the morning time, prepared like oatmeal too. :-) thanks for sharing.
