Gluten-Free Garlic, Pepper, and Herb Quinoa Recipe
Another day, another recipe. I may have mentioned this one before, since it is a favorite of mine. Simple to make, and should be "Safe" for not just gluten-free/celiac-disease folks, but also for the casein-free, corn-free crowd too.
Here's a link to the Gluten-Free Garlic, Pepper, and Herb Quinoa Recipe (as pictured above).
I like this quinoa dish both as a main course and as a delicious side dish. I have been wondering, in fact, whether or not this quinoa could be prepared as such and then used to stuff a turkey? I don't see why it would not work. Though, perhaps it is best to just serve it in place of stuffing and not worry about actually placing it inside a turkey - since there is probably little benefit other than perhaps keeping the turkey more moist and having some turkey flavor permeate the quinoa. Oh, just thinking as I type by gluten free entry of the day in my blog again. :)
For anyone that cares about the "healthfulness" of quinoa, I did a prior blog entry on quinoa
where I discuss the protein and fiber content and such. It really is an awesome gluten-free grain, and I have seen the grain gain more attention lately - even our latest issue of Cooking Light has a quinoa dish in it, which thrilled me.
