I had to end the week of quinoa a little earlier than planned. The quinoa was making everyone a little gassy. Which, actually, isn't a problem all that much. We eat a lot of beans and broccoli and other gassy legumes & vegetables. The problem is that I am breast feeding and the gassiness was starting to affect Gemma. I am sad since I loved everything I had made so far and still had many recipes that I wanted to try. I will wait and try again in a few months. In the meantime, here are all the recipes I had on my list to make- there is way more than a weeks worth! Some are from you, dear readers, a few are from my mom and others I found online.
oven chimichangas (use quinoa in place of the brown rice)
chicken with quinoa and veggies
zucchini with quinoa stuffing
quiona stuffed peppers
sweet potato and lentil packets (serve with quinoa)
creamy quinoa primavera
italian broccoli and quinoa pilaf
walnut rosemary quinoa
quinoa with apricots and pecans
toasted quinoa salad with scallops and snow peas (I would substitute shrimp for the scallops)
warm quinoa salad with toasted almonds
So, go cook and eat some delicious and healthy quinoa! If there is a recipe that you particularly enjoy please let me know.
