Quinoa: The Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Side Dish by Family Spice

If you haven’t noticed, I am on a quinoa-kick. I discovered this wonderful non-grain a few years back, but I didn’t really know how too cook with it or what to do with it. And so, the internet search began. It only took a few recipes for quinoa to receive my love and adoration. I’ve been creating with quinoa ever since.

My kids are still iffy about it, but most everyone that I introduce quinoa to, fall in love, as well. My friends ask me for more quinoa recipes, and I am happy to oblige.

So this Thanksgiving, make the mashed potatoes, make the stuffing and the other usual fixings. But why not add something new, like quinoa?

Here are some of the newest quinoa additions I’ve added to the website:

Zucchini and Lemon Quinoa Pilaf

And of course, there are the other quinoa recipes I’ve already posted.

Now, I’ve got a short-on-words post today because of a possible baby being born – not mine! I’ll share the good news next week.

Have a great weekend!
