Exciting, flavorful, bold and tantalizing. Yes, we’re talking about quinoa! These creative quinoa recipes will impress any foodie.
If you think quinoa is old news, think again.
It’s no secret that we were obsessed with it in 2015… and 2014 and yeah, we were pretty excited about it in 2012 as well. It’s been a long-term love affair, and our passion for this superfood hasn’t died one bit. While before we lauded quinoa for its nutritional benefits, we now appreciate it for its versatility (but don’t worry, we certainly haven’t forgotten about how it’s a complete protein and full of fiber).
Now that we’ve come to know and love quinoa, we’re trying it in whole new ways! These quinoa recipes take us above and beyond the usual, with bold and bright flavors that wow our taste buds and leave us wanting more. Our FitFluential Ambassadors create some of the most creative recipes we’ve ever seen, and we think you’ll agree!
