    Love this recipe and your site! I live in a small town in Costa Rica and my markets don’t always have all of your ingredients so I substitute. I’ve made this twice now and it’s a favorite. We don’t have cheesy tortellini (or any refrigerated pasta here) so I boil elbow noodles al dente and add them in to the slow cooler when there is about 45 minutes left. Tastes delicious!

  2. why do they all have quinoa in them

  3. These recipes look deliciously healthy. I think I must try these!!

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    All of these recipes sound delicious! I cook quinoa a lot so I will definitely be trying all these out! Thanks for sharing! Keep it u 😉

  5. Recipes looks very delicious and i like so much. Keep posting like this.

  6. This sounds amazing!! I have a child with egg allergy so we can’t use mayonnaise but sometimes I crave chicken salad! Can’t wait to try this!!

  7. Love your recipes! Thank you for using ingredients that are easy to find.

  8. Fabulous fresh ingredients that inspire me to try some new ideas

  9. I love all these uses of quinoa. Thank you for the inspiration. As a mom, I need all the help I can get in expediting the to-do’s. Really excellent! Thank you!

  10. I’ve tried about half of these so far (and have plans for the other half in the next week or so!); every single one of them has been amazingly delicious and filling. I love that many of the ingredients are used across several of the recipes, and that it’s all real stuff I can get at my local grocery store without breaking the bank. Thank you for the healthy & delicious ideas!

    For all newbies out there, these ARE easy, but triple the prep time. I feel like “prepared quinoa” as an ingredient is a little deceptive when it takes 30 minutes just to prepare the quinoa. You can, however, prepare an entire pot of quinoa at once and then use it for several recipes. (But it still takes me forever to dice up all the vegetables.)

    Again, these are absolutely delicious and worth your time, but be sure to budget a little extra if you’re like me and have little ones with an early bedtime!

  11. Why does everyone of these recipes involve quinoa? I get how its a healthy grain but have some variety. Just cause you throw quinoa on something does not make it automatically healthy.

  12. Dam!! I really like your Blog so much!! Thank you so much for sharing that with us

  13. These look awesome. I’ve never tried lettuce wraps before but these recipes look so good I will be trying them this weekend!

  14. Thank you for all these recipes.  These looks awesome thank you for posting these.

  16. Thanks for sharing those recipes!! It looks delicious!!!

  17. All of these things look faaaantastic! Loving the sound of the quinoa chicken parmesan especially 😀 Didn’t know you could use quinoa for crust, clever 😀 x

  18. I have been very curious about trying Quinoa and with all of these delicious looking recipes, I think it’s time to do it! 😉
