No recipe here, just a movie I would like to see.
Yes, I was first interested in the movie Jon Quinoa because I am on this quinoa kick. If it involves quinoa and I hear about it, you can be sure I am off to learn more. Then I saw the Jon Quinoa trailer and I have to admit I do not know that this film has anything to do with quinoa, but it looks like fun. Filmmaker Kate Cotruvo offered a private screening of this black and white murder mystery last night in San Francisco, and unfortunately I missed out here in Massachusetts.
I like the song in the trailer. I wonder when/if Jon Quinoa is coming to the East Coast.
Here are a few recipes to tempt your palate and urge you back in the kitchen:
The recipe reproduced at this link comes from Quinoa 365: The Everyday Superfood, the cookbook I have mentioned before, the one at the top of my Christmas list this year. I have seen so many positive reviews, I know I am going to love it.
If you have had enough of quinoa porridge or eggs with quinoa for breakfast, you should check out these pumpkin pancakes for a change of pace. You can substitute wheat flour if you don’t have quinoa flour in this recipe, but then your pancakes won’t have any quinoa in them.
Perhaps you would prefer a cake for breakfast. Dr. Bill Cosby would certainly approve.
This cake uses quinoa flour and flax seed to create a healthy, gluten free cake that would be hit at a holiday brunch.
Remember this bit of classic Coz?
This vegan quinoa salad would accompany my salsa chicken nicely. I love salsa chicken – it’s so quick and easy to make – but I have never had the right side dish to go with it. I often serve the chicken with plain white rice and corn on the side, but I bet the corn and beans in this quinoa salad would make a nice visual contrast to white chicken with a tomato salsa and taste much better than plain white rice.
This festive vegan quinoa salad has bright colors in keeping with the holiday season. Red quinoa with orange squash and fresh parsley make it a beautiful introduction to quinoa for the uninitiated.
Well, I’m off to do some cooking myself. I am eating the last of my Ground Beef Chili with Quinoa, so I think it is time for a quinoa salad. I have butternut squash, sweet potatoes, broccoli, corn, cilantro – I can whip up something tasty and nutritious in no time.
