    -Took it out and stirred
    -Covered again and put it back in for another 7 minutes
    -Stirred in vanilla soy milk until saturated (looked like a bowl of cereal)
    -Then I stirred in about 3TBS of honey

    Since I was on a carb load I asn't concernd about anything carb wise but it was pretty sweet IMO. You could get away with a little less of both the soy milk and honey.
    Sounds good. Would you say like a cup of soymilk or what?


  2. Probably a little less than a cup, maybe 3/4

  5. I just bought mine at TJ's after reading this thread....

    I'm going to try one half cup of this stuff cooked, with a chopped up banana, blueberries, flaxseed oil, and chocolate whey protein...kind of a cereal.

    I never knew either until I saw a pronounciation key on a package. You'd think it was like key-noah, from the spelling.

    On a side note, I saw a quinoa flour tonight in the health section of a local supermarket. I'm tempted to maybe pick some up and experiment w/ it. I might incorporate it into a healthy pizza crust recipe or maybe a pancake mix, etc.

    I thought it was kwinoah like doctor quinnine.... the flour could be interesting, since it has that earthy taste. might make nice pancakes or waffles

    i pronouned it qui noah but the this hot chick in her late 20s failed to correct me but showed me exactly where it was!

  11. This recipe looks incredible, if you could sub. splenda or the splenda baking blend for the sugar. It's got a lot of butter, but if you were buling, it might not matter. anyway, check it out. Someone make this and let us know. I'll prob. do it myself, soon.

  12. Where does this range on the Glycimic Index?

  13. damn, I should grind some of my raw quinoa into flour to try that. I wonder if the amaranth is a necessity.

    Amaranth is pretty good stuff, too, so I'd just pick up some of its flour and do it according to the recipe, but tweaking the sugar, as I mentioned. If i had the day off, I'd be tempted to make it today. I did send the recipe to the gf, though...lol.

  17. I'm just not sure where the nearest hippie store is i'll have to look tonite at publix and see what they have. I have whole wheat whole grain flour here, I could use that i guess.

    Check out if there's a health food section of the place. A lot of major chains now have very nice little health sections, stocked up w/ a lot of good stuff. If worse comes to worse, Bob's Red Mill has a website that sells it, among other whole grain flours.

  19. You know, I think target has a fair variety of the bob's red mill stuff.

  20. target?? go figure

  21. I was watching Emeril Lagasse last night and he cooked a dish using quinoa. I wouldn't have even realized he was using quinoa if it wasn't for this thread b/c he was pronouncing it the correct way, and I would have never guessed thats how it is said.

    keen-wa. At first I was like WTF is that? Then he said it was a grain that was really good for you, then it hit me

    just tried some tonight and it is really good by itself. Just make sure you wash it thoroughly. I let mine sit in warm water for 20 minutes, then drain, then rinse again until the water is clear. Threw it in a pot and let it simmer for 20 minutes and eat. No earthy taste at all and it surprisingly does not bloat either.

  25. Great stuff I just gave a friend of mine(user name sweetlou32937) ab ox, we'll see how he likes it!
