just bought it today. supposed to be a good carb/fiber source. and apparently its a complete protein
Don't lie those are marijuana seeds aren't they?
heard of it, never eaten it. What the hell do you even do with it?
just cook it in a pot like you would rice.
1 part quinoa
2 parts water
bring to a boil. turn to medium with lid on. let it simmer until its absorbed the water basically
im gonna try some tonight, its supposed to be good for you
It has a nutty flavor, I thought it was good when I tried it. You can use it as a rice substitute or you can even make desserts with it, so it would be a "healthy" dessert maybe (well, just a reason to eat something nice).
do you have any solid nutrition data on it? every google link that comes up gives me something different.
also, do growers usually remove the saponin before shipping to sellers?
yea i eat it sometimes. it's good to add to a salad. i always end up making too much of it though
Use this when you want health-related info on food : http://www.whfoods.com/foodstoc.php
There's a link with the nutrient profile at the end of the quinoa page : http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrientprofile&dbid=143
And there's Nutrition Data which is valuable : http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-C00001-01c21U1.html
It's all in the EDU
wow, this stuff is actually really good. i found a new staple
tastes really good with maple syrup
i cooked it plain, ate it plain. not a whole lot of taste, but its good for some reason
where'd you buy it at?
I actually picked some of that up tonight at Whole Foods
i've never even heard of half the stuff you guys eat
My gf's sister used to make it regular and mix it with dishes instead of rice. Would always eat too much and feel/get bloated.
name and address on the bag
eggs, oats, and broccoli is all you need
i'll go look for some soon... gettin' tired of brown rice
I could use a brown rice substitute. I will have to check this stuff out.
Do they sell this at regular grocers?
sautee some onions and green peppers, throw them into the boiling water while its cooking..
and i love the consistency of it
yeah..in boxes though, not bags..
you can get it at any grocery store.
