  1. I didnt realize that the Quinoa “pops” like that…awesome! I feel as though sometimes my quinoa does not get fluffy like that and I end up having to add more water and cook for longer- does that ever happen to you???

  2. All I can think about is the commercial where the guy is at the football game cooking quinoa patties. SO FUNNY! Such a great video, I need to get better about cooking this grain.

  3. I loveee quinoa! Thank you so so much for these tips! I just emailed my brother this video. Now he has no excuses for eating healthy in a college apartment! :)

  4. Another excellent video tutorial from Just a Taste! Quinoa is a much healthier option over rice as it is a complete protein and lower glycemic. So, it is a good thing to get the word out on just how easy it is to prepare and the ways to enjoy it. Thank you for sharing, Kelly!

  5. Perfect! just in time! i just posted a quinoa salad recipe yesterday on my blog, and i will link to this post in my recipe. Thank you :)
