Easy Quinoa Cooking Directions

Here’s to my new favorite toy, Quinoa!  I try to use it in as many ways as possible. I began using quinoa as an alternative to rice which my body doesn’t tolerate well. It is a great substitute for a grain free diet as it is actually a seed. It can be used in place of rice in most recipes. I’ve used it everywhere from side dishes and tuna salad to quiche and pizza crust.  Looking for ways to use your quinoa? Check out our easy quinoa recipes!
