Do you cook and eat quinoa regularly?

Or have you never tried it?

Quinoa is quite nice but not that different in taste to white rice.
I have tried the white one mostly, and it upsets my stomach sometimes so I gave it away and have not now cooked with it for about a year.

I will try again though as I used to make a lovely salad with it.

I love it...and I cook mine in the Microwave, and then mix in salad...yum...yum...yum.
Great to keep on hand, and if you have people over it can look amazing with other foods together....Very quick, a winner tooooo!
No. I tried it, didn't mind it but haven't bothered again.

I haven't bothered with it. Perhaps I should give it a go. Though, based on what Finy and Rice have said, I don't know it I should.

It really is very nice, and a great change with salad, give it a try Vee :)
by jonaja
Oh, Vee, do try it. It has a pleasant flavour, I just meant I hadn't revisited it.
by Rice
Maybe I will give it a go. I'm just not excited by it. I like my rice.

We eat quinoa a few times a month at the moment, but I would like to eat it more often, as I understand it is quite nutritious. I have found a few recipes I like and am always on the lookout for more. We use both the white and the mix (white, red, and black). I like the mix best.
I don't like it. Have tried it, but don't like it
I don't go out of my way to buy or use it,though when I have eaten it,I have enjoyed it!
I've bought it but haven't got around to using it as yet.
No I've actually never used it.
Nope. Not for me.
I don't eat quinoa, couscous or polenta. I don't eat brown rice.
I believe they are all very nutritious, but I don't need to eat them for nutrition, I have plenty of meat, fresh vegetables, dairy and grain available for nutrition.
These foods, so I am told, are great for third world countries - but I don't need them. And I also find them quite tasteless. I would eat them if there was absolutely nothing left on the planet for me to ear but as far as a choice goes -- no way.

I've haven't tried Quinoa, but I bought some ages ago, & it's in the fridge, so perhaps my daughter gave it to me, before she left for Melbourne. I do cook with brown once in a while. I can't remember using polenta, although an Italian friend used to make lovely things from it, for her parties, a long time ago. I do have an open packet of it on the bottom shelf of the fridge. I do cook with couscous, about once a week. It's ready to eat in 10 mins. I use it instead of rice, if I think it will go better with a recipe.
