Quinoa Pizza Bites Recipe

April 4th, 2013 by Laura Hanley

I must preface this recipe with the fact that up until this point, I did not think I liked quinoa. The main reason for my dislike of this seed was that I had a poorly prepared dish with it last year and thought that no matter what, the little gluten-free gems could never taste good. Welp folks, I was wrong. This easy quinoa recipe can be used as an alternative to gluten-free pizza dough and will rock your taste-bud’s world.BitesServing

Gluten-Free Quinoa & Pumpkin Seed Granola Recipe

January 10th, 2013 by Chrissy and Lauren

I have dubbed this my no-oat granola. I missed that detail when I first started adapting this recipe and was sure Better Homes and Gardens had forgotten to list the oats in the ingredient list. Alas, it was intentional and I’m loving it! This granola with a little homemade almond milk is my new go-to breakfast, snack, and occasional dinner.

Healthful Pursuit - Leanne Vogel

Did you have a good weekend?

Kevin and I had initially planned to go to Calaway Park, but it ended up raining all weekend so we decided to stay home and organize the house! Sounds much better than going to a theme park, right? *rolls eyes*

It’s amazing how much stuff a person can accumulate over the years, isn’t it? I was surprised to learn that we have 11 boxes of Christmas things – lights, decorations, stockings, etc. That’s more than we have boxes of books, or clothes! There’s something wrong with this picture, no?

Come Sunday afternoon, we had made two trips to the goodwill center, organized the basement, our offices and the garage, and were absolutely drop-dead starving! Kevin kept himself busy sorting through a box of old photos while I prepared a big salad for the two of us. We met in the living room just off the kitchen, sat on the floor with the dogs, and (more…)

Quinoa is a very nutritious food, being a complete protein, but it can have a rather acrid flavour. This is caused by the coating the seed has to discourage insects from eating it.  If you rinse whole quinoa you can get rid of this.  I have used rinsed quinoa in these muffins, which I then toasted to a light brown before adding to the flour.  The whole quinoa gives a crunchy texture.  If you don't want this blitz the quinoa in a blender to get a smooth texture.

Gluten Free Quinoa and Corn Cakes Recipe

April 3rd, 2012 by Amy Fothergill

I'm going to really try to not tell a super long story so you can get right to this recipe. Promise.

A friend of mine brought me one of these a few weeks ago; she had just made a batch and I was very excited to try them. I pictured it being more like a crab cake when she described it but it was closer to a griddle cake since it's flat.

My 6 year old daughter was in the room when she arrived with the sample. I'm thinking, "Oh yeah, it's doesn't have sugar. My daughter won't want this." Wrong.

"What's that, Mama?" she asked.

"Something with quinoa; I don't think you'll like it." (It smelled so good, I really did not want to share this).

"Can I have some?"

"Sure honey" and I gave her a piece.

"Uhmm, that's good!" she says, "Can I have more?". At least she has good manners.

"Of course, you can. I'll give you half." But inside I was like, really? You want this? Woe is me. Never assume what your kids will and won't eat. I think I said that.

So, I got the recipe from my friend. It had come from her sister who had gotten it from a magazine in Southern California so I don't know the exact source. I did change some of the amounts and ingredients as well. If I find out where it came from, I will update the post.

I made the quinoa cakes the next week. Surprisingly, everyone (8 year old son and husband included) loved them. What a great way to get some healthy protein for us all! I hope you will give it a try. (more…)

gluten free quinoa porridge with berries

Gluten Free Quinoa Porridge

A little while ago I did a post on quinoa porridge with banana, however I thought that I would revisit the concept of quinoa porridge for two reasons: 1) it is definitely feeling like porridge weather and 2) I have come across a bit of debate recently about whether oats are in fact gluten free or not.

Just because you are eating a gluten free diet, doesn't mean you have to sacrafice on taste. Why not create a salad that is healthy, delicious and gluten free? The lemon and parsley give it a fresh and light flavor and the combination of quinoa, lentils and beans provide a wonderful balance of texture. Now, that will put a smile on your face!
