    Quinoa Chocolate Cake

    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.

    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...
