As a kid, I hated eating meat. Not just hated, despised it. I would cut it up into teeny tiny bites and push it around my plate or hide it in my napkin. I even asked my mom if I could become a vegetarian because I just didn’t want to eat meat, but no dice. Had I (or my mother) known about these healthy quinoa recipes a decade ago, it might have been a different story.
It’s pretty well known by now that quinoa is a great high-protein replacement for rice and other grains, but it’s actually pretty easy to sneak it into other foods, too. You won’t even know the quinoa is there (unless you’re the one to put it there…). On top of being chock-full of protein, it’s also high in fiber and a good source of iron! They don’t call it a superfood for nothing. Because of all of these health benefits, each of these sneaky quinoa recipes is just that much better.
From breakfast to dessert (yes, even dessert), you’ll have to look really hard to find the quinoa in these recipes. This is a seriously great way to enjoy sweet treats guilt-free. And if you’ve never cooked it before, don’t panic! We’ve got you covered on how to cook quinoa, too.
Without further ado, here are my top healthy quinoa recipes from sneaky to sneakiest–number one will definitely surprise you!
