I have a new favorite food….Quinoa quinoa

I know it’s all the rage right now, with its complete protein it has become a popular choice for healthy eating!  And as we all know, healthy can be delicious!  Quinoa is so versatile that it can be mixed in to just about anything…I once made a gluten-free chocolate cake with ground quinoa!

Lately I have been looking for ways to replace some of the starches in our meals.  Now, as a meat and potatoes girl, I don’t want to get rid of them all together, but just for maybe one meal a week, say goodbye to the potatoes or the rice and replace with something just as filling.

We have a bunch of Quinoa recipes that have now become those replacement foods in our families diet.


Mushroom Fried Quinoa


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 small onion (diced)
  • 10 mushrooms (chopped)
  • 1.5 cups Quinoa
  • 3 cups chicken stock

Directions – in a non-stick frying pan heat olive oil. Sautee onion and garlic until onions are translucent.  Add mushrooms and cook until soft.  Add Quinoa to the mixture and toast, uncovered, for 2-3 minutes.  Add chicken stock, cover and heat until boiling.  Reduce heat to medium and cook for 20 minutes.
