Southwest spicy quinoa bowl.

    • It tastes a little nutty but is able to absorb flavors to create something much more tasty than white rice! 🙂 You may try it while eating out added to a salad or in this case heated up, Holly. 🙂

      • In the summer, I make a big bowl of quinoa, instead of Cole slaw, by cooking it first then adding onions, tomatoes, shredded cheese and vinaigrette with crumbled bleu cheese. I use Italian dressing and sometimes add pepperoni.it is gluten free and instead of raising glycemic level in diabetics, it should improve or lower it. 🙂

      • We were calling the flavorings “southwestern” so this was just a label we attached, Holly. We are big “experimenters” with food. I used to make a pot of different hot grains, adding butter and brown sugar. One I used to buy in bulk was bulgur. 🙂

    • Thanks, I enjoyed it and used to buy purple, red or brown quinoa, Debby. I liked it as a breakfast with butter and maple syrup or brown sugar. Chewy fiber while delicious! 🙂

      • I love quinoa Robin. I too have eaten all those colours, but I’ve never tried for breakfast, good ‘food for thought’ 🙂 Thanks.

    • Hi there, Kath! Thanks so much for your deletable response! I agree about quinoa’s versatility. 🙂
      I like making a fruity dessert (or breakfast) quinoa with either brown sugar or maple syrup. 🙂
