In all its form and around the world, quinoa is gaining in popularity, and is perfect as a side dish, ‎a salad, or for adding some originality to a classic dish. It’s simple to cook and goes with almost ‎anything, and is an open invitation to get as creative as you like.‎

‎Incorporate quinoa into all your favorite dishes!‎

Quinoa is delicious whether served hot or cold. Cold, it can be mixed with chopped tomatoes, ‎red peppers and fresh herbs to make a kind of tabbouleh salad. Hot, the possibilities are almost ‎endless whether you cook it in a non-stick pot or a rice cooker! Why not simply replace all your ‎wheat-based staples with quinoa? Served as a side dish, it gives a touch of originality to a classic ‎stew or curry. And if left to simmer for a long time over a low heat, quinoa can be made into a ‎delicious vegetable risotto — made even more divine when topped with a drizzle of oil.‎

And if you want to keep everyone happy, don’t be afraid to invent your own veggie-burger ‎recipes. Quinoa is perfect for making delicious vegetarian croquettes and burgers – simply mix ‎with mashed chickpeas or gram flour and a few herbs and spices, everyone will be asking for ‎more! For those with a sweet tooth, quinoa flour is an excellent gluten-free alternative for making ‎cookies, pancakes and breads and light cakes that will wow everyone with their delicious flavor ‎of hazelnuts. Quinoa can also be used in place of rice, and is even available as a plant milk!‎ ‎
