Quinoa? Easy and essential. I use it in place of couscous in my take-to-parties dish:
sauté an onion and some garlic, add to the mixture 1/4 tsp cumin, 1/4 tsp turmeric, 1/4 tsp ginger powder and 1/4 tsp cinnamon (I usually double these to 1/2 tsp). Add wine or broth as you would do to make risotto, adding liquid until the quinoa is done. When all the liquid is absorbed, throw in a handful each of chopped dried apricots, pistacho nuts, currants, and parsley. Salt and pepper to taste. Yum. Oh, and I'll take that bulgur wheat. Great in Turkish recipes.


Uh, who has tumeric and ginger powder just hangin' around? And what do you mean, "As you would make risotto?" If I knew how to make risotto, I'd know what the heck to do with quinoa!


Looking at your list it seems that I ahve the same problem. I seeem to be buying the same things over and over again and not using them.Got to sort this out.
