 Quinoa is one of those tiny foods that is so incredibly versatile and good for you, that you really should know a bit about it. In just 100 grams of uncooked quinoa you’ll find large amounts of magnesium and vitamin B, and 14 grams of protein. Quinoa can be used as a meat substitute or enhancer, grain substitute, and can also be used in some of the sweetest creations. Great Harvest in Medford would like to share a few of our favorite Quinoa Dessert recipes today.

Let us start with something simple, with this Strawberries and Cream quinoa recipe:

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • ¾ cup of quinoa
  • 1 and ¾ cup of strawberries-cut in quarters
  • 2 tbsps sugar, agave, or honey
  • ⅛ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 dash of salt
