I'd like to try a quinoa-based vegetarian or vegan main course in a couple of days. Most of the quinoa recipes I find online are salads or side dishes, or main courses that sound kinda blah. It's just us two adults so no need to meet the tastes of children. Ideas? Recipes?
heh--as soon as I posted, I remembered that I had posted something about quinoa myself, and found it (from November). When I did a TMF search on quinoa, it didn't some up and I had forgotten. I'd still be happy to learn about your recipes!
Quinoa stuffed peppers? (I consider stuffed peppers a main course). I've seen a veggie burgers made with it too. Or just take your favorite main course rice dish and use quinoa instead. I have to admit--I only like quinoa as a substitute for bulgur in gluten-free tabbouleh. Tried it as a rice substitute in my corn-tomato-black bean salad and MUCH prefer rice...
Just remembered I saw this one (other quinoa recipes on site too--but not sure if you'd consider them main courses):Quinoa with Butternut Squash Gratinhttp://suite101.com/article/quinoa-and-butternut-squash-grat...You could probably find a bunch of recipes on the Ancient Grains or Earthly Choice sites:http://www.quinoa.net/181.htmlhttp://www.earthlychoice.com/quinoa-recipes.html
The quinoa-cauliflower kugel from my November NYTimes link, your first link to the quinoa-butternut squash gratin, and this from your third link:Quinoa Dinner1.5 cups quinoa 1.5 TBS olive oil6 cloves garlic 2 oz pine nuts1 can garbanzo beans 1 can artichoke hearts1 package Mediterranean feta cheese (4.4 oz) 2 cups baby spinach2 TBS oregano Place quinoa and 3 cups of water in a pot, bring to a boil for 5 minutes, then remove from heat and let stand for 15 minutes, covered.Heat oil in large skillet. Finely slice garlic and brown in oil for a couple of minutes. Once lightly browned, add pine nuts for a minute or two, and then toss in cooked quinoa. Add garbanzos, artichokes, and spinach and toss until spinach wilts. Toss in cheese and serve immediately.Are my leading contenders. I'm leaning toward the kugel because I got cauliflower on sale and can sub something else for its original purpose. Thanks very much for replying to my query, ZF.I'm trying to use neglected items in the pantry this month as well as increase my repertoire of vegetarian dinners...please post your successful recipes, everyone!
Well, I ended up focusing on cauliflower instead of quinoa, and made this:http://boards.fool.com/sicilian-cauliflower-30491927.aspxAnd an amazing vegetarian dinner it was!
