50 Favorite Quinoa Recipes - Your Thrive Life (2024)

by Jodi Weiss 6 Comments

THRIVE Quinoa is gluten-free and USDA-certified organic. It is unique because although it is typically considered a grain, it is actually closely related to leafy green spinach, making quinoa rich in both amino acids and protein. When cooked, quinoa can become a delicious hot cereal, pasta, or side dish.

Many people may have heard of the health benefits of quinoa or tried it in a fancy salad but are at a loss as to how to use it at home. Today we are going to help you break that barrier by giving you FIFTY favorite quinoa recipes to try that we have gotten from friends on our Facebook page and other food storage bloggers.

    When I originally commented I clixked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    noww each tie a comment is added I gett several
    emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Many thanks!

      I don’t think I can change it on our end. Maybe in the emails that are sent you can request to unsubscribe next time a comment comes through? Sorry for the hassle!

        Sounds great and a good formate to get guests speakers to speak to their topic. It’s always great to have people talk to a group since they tend to put more energy into it. Keep up the great work.

    My 6 yr old was just diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and now I’m looking at my preparedness with new eyes. The quinoa is great, but packed with carbs meaning a bigger shot 🙁 Can you share or send me in the direction of some good diabetic info? We are looking for low carb, all natural types of foods!

    Thank you! Your posts on Facebook and your emails have given me a sense of confidence in my storage and preparedness!
