Make-Ahead Mustardy Quinoa with Sausage, Potato, and Tarragon

Serious Eats Suzanne Lehrer 1 comment

This week's lunchbox was borne out of a desire to make and eat my favorite potato salad for lunch, followed by the begrudging conclusion that just potato salad does not a responsible lunch make. So I added some things—handfuls of arugula and a base of black quinoa—to turn a side dish craving into a full-fledged meal. More

Shauna James Ahern's Quinoa-Stuffed Peppers

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

Stuffed peppers have a reputation for being stogy and full of overcooked meat and/or mushy rice. Yet there's no reason why they need to be filled with such uninspired ingredients, or even any meat at all. Shauna James Ahern's recipe for the dish in Gluten-Free Girl Every Day is, in fact, practically vegan. The bulk of her stuffing is steamed quinoa enlivened with sweet caramelized onions, yellow raisins, and wholesome kale. She adds a bit of garlic and cumin for earthiness, but otherwise leaves well enough alone. A hot oven adds char and deeper flavor to the peppers, making this cute entree worlds away from the heavy original. More

Make-Ahead Curried Coconut Quinoa with Shrimp and Basil

Serious Eats Suzanne Lehrer 4 comments

Somewhere between saucy and soupy, this dish is just shy of a full-blown curry. Quinoa, mushrooms and shrimp are cooked in coconut milk and curry powder so they're infused with flavor--and then finished with fresh basil. Adding coconut milk makes the quinoa extra brothy, so it won't dry out when you reheat it the next day. More

Mindy Fox's Red Quinoa, Raw Asparagus and Endive Salad with Shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

When asparagus is truly in season, like at this exact moment, the vegetable is so sweet and tender it doesn't even need to be cooked. Just thinly slice the stalks, dress them with a vinaigrette, and you're left with a stunningly simple fresh asparagus salad. The only catch is that they are often light, bordering on the insubstantial. This recipe from Mindy Fox's Salads: Beyond the Bowl solves that problem by adding red quinoa. More
