    Recipe Chocolate Quinoa Porridge with Allspice & Cinnamon

    0.5 tsp of Allspice with 0.25 tsp of cinnamon is good. I wasn't so keen on cardamom or cumin, but may try black pepper. Would you leave the cloves as they are or grind them? At what point would I add them to the recipe? I have some mace leaves which don't grind well. When should I add them? I...

    Recipe Quinoa Chocolate with Dates

    I've adapted my recipe to get the sugar from dates rather than Truvia. Please can I have your thoughts? Am I adding ingredients at the right time? I was adding the cinnamon at the end, but read in The Science of Spice that it's better to add it early on. If adding early, should I add more? Any...

    Adding yeast extract to quinoa or buckwheat

    I want to make some plain buckwheat or quinoa then add yeast extract. Normally, I would pour some into a measuring container, weigh it then pour it into my mixture. However, yeast extract is quite stringy, so may not pour very easily. It could also end up sticking to the wooden spoon without...

    Quinoa Chocolate Cake

    I've come across this recipe and would like to make it healthier without adversely affecting the flavour or texture. Am I OK using dairy milk and butter? Can I replace the coconut oil with rapeseed or Sunflower oil? If so, would it be a 1:1 replacement? If I replace the cup (200g) coconut...

    Recipe & Video California scones

    I'm from LA and the eating falls on one of two sides: Swimming in decadence or 'healthy'. These scones fall in the latter and are made with spelt flour (for flavor -- and they do add a wonderfully nuttiness) and quinoa for texture and added protein. I finish them off before putting them in the...

    Cooking Quinoa and water

    When cooking Quinoa do you add boiling water to the Quinoa or add cold water and bring it to the boil? Or perhaps it doesn't matter.

    Quinoa and Milk

    When boiling quinoa with water, the instructions say to cover it. I was following a recipe which involved using milk instead of water. The quinoa didn't seem to absorb into the milk, so I was wondering if it's best to leave the milk and quinoa uncovered and stir regularly. Any thoughts?

    Recipe Tricolor Vegetarian Quinoa Salad

    There are three quinoa colors - I decided to run a taste test of all three. Since I could not cook all three in my rice cooker at the same time (without them running together), I decided this had to be a salad, as I wanted all the quinoa to be served at the same temperature. This recipe per...
