the first time I saw or herd of quinoa grains or quinoa buriyani I was thinking alot.
so I decided to ask the quinoa
here is my interview with quinoa
Me: hi quinoa, how do you taste?
Q: hi foodie, try me and find for yourself. i hate boosting.
So i grab a mixed quinoa pack and made some buriyani inspired the buriyani pot dubai image on instagram.
The buriyani was okay and maybe it needed more cooking time but the quinoa was quiet chewy and i dint miss rice 🙂
Later on i decided to do some invention tests and started off making quinoa pizza, salad and quiches (images not available as they went in fast and were experiments)
So here is my latest intention tests and successful recipes.
There is no big magic but gladly the pie turned out of the ramekins which made me happy and call it a real pie.
So i dont need flour to make a pie anymore.
Now the quinoa stand on my pantry making a second batch entry weeping and counting its days 🙂
Let me say this ingredient needs to be cooked exactly like rice and if we dont check frkm time to time you might get an overcooked quinoa and end up makong a porridge.
Some images below were created especially for a competition but am glad i did and now i realized that being incentive helps a recipe writer to buil her own recipes and that why i am the recipe writer 🙂
Havs a great day and keep doing some invention tests in your pantry. After all watching masterchef and worrying if this might work or not is pointless.
cover the top with more quinoa and tap to tighten the pie
bake at 180 for 15 minutes
feel like having fried rice for lunch? no worries stir fry the quinoa on the same method and eat healthy
To make a pizza use the quinoa in the same way but to give it some firmness add some low calory cheese to bind it together 🙂
