As I already told in my Quinoa mung sprouts Khichdi that all quinoa ideas are my hubby ideas. Again he ask me to make that khichdi but that day I don’t have sprouts so he said instead of mung sprouts add oats .Rest of the method I followed the same .Believe me it was a great hit at my place . Few changes which I did that I added some more veggies this time like I do in quinoa tahri.All quinoa recipes are quite easy too just throw all things together in pressure cooker and get healthy meal in no time.😋
I fell in love with small and tiny healthy grain quinoa because of my darling hubby. Daily he gives me new ideas how to use this healthy grain in my kitchen.This is his idea to make quinoa with sprouts.Like this he gave some other also .Soon I am going to share more quinoa recipes.Quinoa Tahari was also his idea.😃.
Quinoa, often described as a “superfood” or a “supergrain,” has become popular among the health conscious, with good reason. Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah or ke-NO-ah) is packed with protein, fiber and various vitamins and minerals. It is also gluten-free and is recommended for people who are on a gluten-free diet.My family likes quinoa so much.It is very healthy diet.
