  • I like frozen raspberries in this recipe. They have lots of flavor & plenty of juices to cook with the quinoa. Flavors really sink the quinoa as it cooks.

  1. I keep going back & forth on quinoa. For some reason I think I should like it. I mean, it’s not that different from millet & bulgur wheat, right? But of all the recipes I’ve tried, I only like one. So far. I could see trying this. I do love fresh fruit.

    • Hopefully we can get you to love quinoa too! Be sure to rinse it before you cook it….some have a bitter taste if you don’t do that.

    • Do I feel honored or what Matt! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment and sweet compliments right after you brand new son was born! You & your wife are amazing! Enjoy & love on your new son :)

  2. I just made it this morning, and it has a really good taste but these seeds feel like I am eating a mouthful of small stones. I stirred for 20 min from the point it started boiling, maybe it was not enough? Its is first time I try quinoa btw.
