Quinoa ~ "the magical food"

Page 3 of 3 First 123

  1. 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.

    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.

    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.

  11. 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.

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

  16. try adding some parmesan cheese after it's cooked - tasty stuff - particularly red quinoa

    Thanks man ! Ive been looking for new recipes/ideas!

  18. How filling is it compared to other complex carbs like oatmeal (pretty filling) or brown rice (i can eat a tonna brown rice without filling up)?

    Not filling at all if you're doing 1/2 cup. A cup at a time is pushing the limit, though. I used to do a cup and felt really full and gassy.

    Half a cup seems just right. You still have room for some lean meat or something to add protein. You'd already have a lot of good carbs and fiber.

  20. It'd be fine just grinding this stuff up like oats to throw into a shake right?

    Would it be better to cook it then grind it up?

    Also, I'm guessing that it's okay to store this stuff for a long time as long as you keep it dry too?

  21. this thread is still alive. awesome!

    i would think it would store and can be used exactly like oats.

    however it does have a little more of a distinct flavor that oats which are more flavorless. so i'm curious as to how it would taste ground up and thrown in a shake.

  23. Glycemic index is a rather imperfect system.

    I finally found some of this guy at Giant Eagle. It's pretty decent. I think it's comparable with brown rice, and tastes delicious with a li'l terriaki sauce.

    I dunno about oatmeal, though. I usually put raspberries and whey protein in my oatmeal (delicious, if you've never tried). I did this with quinoa.......um, no. :P

    its a pretty fair replacement for rice, it just has a bit of its own flavor, a sort of nutty/earthy taste.
