200+ Quinoa Recipes You Can Make Tonight

200 Quinoa Recipes

Lately, I have become addicted to incorporating Quinoa into recipes and meals. My kids like it, I love it, and it’s ridiculously healthy for you. You could almost say we have become addicted.

Recently, a friend of mine who is trying to eat healthier and lose weight, asked me to help him find some products that taste good and that he could use as a substitute for other less healthy choices. I immediately thought of Quinoa and wanted to share recipes and ways to prepare it, so he’d have plenty of options.

Health Benefits of Quinoa

The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations officially declared that 2013 be recognized as “The International Year of the Quinoa.” And it’s no wonder why, the little grain is an amazing addition to any dish. And the health benefits are amazing.  You can learn and read more about all the health benefits of quinoa by visiting this article from whfoods.com.
