Notes:

  • You can choose the type of milk you prefer or just use the same quantity of water if you want to go dairy-free.
  • We used apple but you could try frozen or fresh berries, bananas, mango or even dried fruit.
  • You can add a little natural sweetener like honey or maple syrup, or some brown sugar if you have a sweet tooth.
  • You can find more tips on our How to cook quinoa article.
  • I always like to cook some extra quinoa so I can make this Quinoa tabouleh. It makes a great replacement for the burghul.
  • Quinoa goes perfectly well with salad vegetables, especially in this Crunchy quinoa salad.
  • In winter you could also cook this delicious Hearty beef and quinoa stew. It is filling and healthy.
  • Kids will love these Pork and quinoa balls with sweet chilli sauce. They are the perfect finger food for little ones.
  • You can try this Quinoa and apple porridge that is cooked conventionally instead of using the rice cooker.
  • You also use quinoa to make this Quinoa fried rice. Just cook and use it exactly the same way you would long grain rice.
