Ultimate List of Quinoa Recipes

You know how to cook quinoa and where to buy it (affiliate Links: AmazonVitacost, Sam’s Club, health food store).  Now you need to know what to use it in. There is nothing more frustrating than having food taking up space in your pantry and not knowing what to use it in. You end up spending hours searching the internet to find the perfect recipe to try. To save you time I have collected a list of recipes and compiled them here. Hopefully you will find some that sound yummy. I know that I’ll be referring back to this list for my quinoa cooking needs. Quinoa Recipes I have marked which recipes are Gluten Free and Dairy Free for you convenience. Just make sure you use gluten-free oats and dairy free chocolate chips such as these Enjoy Life ones. (Affiliate Link) Most recipes would be considered real food or can be made so with a few easy tweaks.

      I can’t wait to try your bars! They look amazing and like they have the perfect chewy crunchy contrast. I can’t wait to try them, can’t beat a healthy dessert.

      I know! It makes me hungry looking over the list. I think that recipe looks great as well. Your no bake cookies sound amazing, and with how hot it is a treat that doesn’t require an oven is nice.

    I love quinoa, in fact I am eating it in a salad this moment as I type!
    This fabulous roundup of quinoa recipes will keep me eating quinoa for days! I like to make a savory Curried Quinoa Pilaf.
    So glad I found your post on Thank Goodness It’s Monday. All the best!

    Quinoa is a staple in my house. I even get the kids to eat it. Sometimes they call it “weird rice” 🙂 This is a great roundup of recipes. Totally pinning it!

    Thanks for joining the Mixing Bowl Party this month!

      Love that you guys eat lots of quinoa! Love “weird rice”, that’s an awesome thing to call it. What’s your guys’ favorite way to eat it? My husband still isn’t a lover, but he tolerates it. Hopefully someday he’ll come around all the way. 🙂

    Have you had a chance to try many of these? We use a lot of Quinoa – it has definitely helped my husband ( a huge lover of white rice) to bring his blood sugar to normal and get off of diabetes medicines. Would love to hear if others have tried any of these and about their successes and failures.

      I’ve made the Slow Cooker Quinoa Chili, loved the Brown Butter Garden Pasta (can’t skip the sage though, it makes the dish), Crispy Quinoa Bake (I really liked it my husband just thought it was okay), Balsamic Chicken with Quinoa and vegetables (both like this one), Curry Chicken Quinoa with peas (both like), Lime Cilantro Qunioa Salad (I love this and easy to adapt. Wouldn’t be one of my husband’s favorites, so I make it for lunch), Quinoa Pizza Bites (these were just so so). I feel like I’ve made a few others, but I’m not sure which right now. You’ll have to let me know if you try any and how they are!
