Quinoa ~ "the magical food"

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.Animis Rep

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.

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.

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.

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)?

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.

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?

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.

yeah, thats interesting. i've been buying it by the pound recently, its $2.10/lb I think at a local store

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.
