Quinoa and Vegetable Tabouli Salad

"Wow! This is the very first time I liked eating quinoa..and I've tried several times before. I'm soooo happy!! Quinoa is so very good for your health. I especially like the amount of veggies added to this recipe, too. It took me longer than the 20 min. prep time to do all the chopping, etc... but it was well worth the time! I love the simple and tasty dressing. I am putting this recipe into my best of the best file because it made me love quinoa! Also, I don't normally eat/like radishes, but they are fantastic in this salad. Don't miss that!"

-Cynthia S.

Quinoa Muffins

"These are my favorite muffins, and my favorite way to eat quinoa."


Quinoa Salad

"I loved this salad! It was easy to make, healthy and hearty. Plus it would transport easily. Strangely, I liked it best when it was freshly made, the nuts were crunchier and the lemon tartness came through better. After being covered overnight, the tang from the sauce sort of disappeared. So if I were making the salad ahead, I might wait to add the lemon and nuts until just before serving."
