Here are my five fave quinoa recipes. I love quinoa. It is quite high in protein and packed with fiber and a subtly nutty flavor. One cup of quinoa contains around 8g protein. Not bad for a seed. Fun fact: yes, quinoa is a seed – not a grain like most people think. There is so much you can do with quinoa. Here are a few fun recipes: a paella, a risotto and even a guide to get the fluffiest quinoa ever!..
