Pumpkin Quinoa

I went to Whole Foods again today. I bought a quinoa candy bar and a fig.

Pumpkin Quinoa


Savory Pumpkin Quinoa Stuffing - It's that time of year. Everyone is thinking pumpkins and stuffing. This is a nice two serving side dish for those who aren't cooking for a crowd.

Pumpkin Pie Quinoa Parfaits - These could be fun. I have been enjoying yogurt and quinoa parfaits and I am certain the addition of pumpkin will make my tongue happy. This is another two serving recipe.

Pumpkins Stuffed With Quinoa, Butternut, and Cranberries - These look beautiful and I love that they use the pumpkin seeds in the stuffing. I want to throw a party so I have an excuse to make these and show them off to real friends (and not just my fellow cyber foodies.)

FitSmart Quinoa

Twitter was abuzz yesterday on #quinoa with a link to the FitSugar community's new collection of quinoa recipes. The photos are gorgeous and the recipes tempting. I am impressed with the number of tweeps who tweeted this. FitSmart has an active Twitter community.

Quinoa Recipes 10/6/10

Here are a few more quinoa recipes I found around the net yesterday.

Peach or Nectarine and Blueberry Crumble with Quinoa-Oat ToppingThe New York Times featured another crumble using the same topping as yesterday's Plum and Fig Crumble. This recipe seems a little more accessible to me.

Balsamic Quinoa Salad and Mustard-Crusted Tofu Planks - I have been watching for a quinoa recipe with  mustard and I can't remember the last time I ate tofu. This recipe would be way out of one son's comfort zone, but I might be able to sell it to the other two boys.

I wonder what a courgette is.

Red Quinoa Salad With Figs and Cucumbers - This is a fun picnic salad because it is served in bell pepper bowls - no mess. I picked up red quinoa the other day so I can start making more colorful quinoa.

I'm off to cook some quinoa. Please let me know if you have tried any of these recipes.
