    I have never had quinoa..are you using it in place of meat? The chili looks delicious!! With the price of meat soaring,it may be a good substitute for those who don’t raise their own. The cornbread looks yummy too!!

    Hi farmhousebarb,
    Quinoa does have a lot of protein, so in that sense it would be a good substitute for meat. Taste wise it is kinda like rice or pasta, pretty bland on its own but good when added to a dish with lots of flavor.

      Thanks for the info,Rachel. I will have to look and see if I can find some around here..it might be difficult locating. We like barley,so I am thinking we would like quinoa.

      I asked my sister what to put in Quinoa before I tried it. I now use chicken broth, bay leaves, celery seed and/or savory. It is great. I have both red and whited Quinoa. They are both delicious

        Bonnie, thanks for sharing…I love quinoa, especially the red…Quinoa is now actually starting to show on the shelves of Amish bulk food stores, although I think that is mainly for non-Amish customers who want it…be interesting to see if it ever catches on among the Amish as a protein-packed meat alternative…

    The email said there is a link to the chili recipe, but I’m not seeing it. Would love to have the recipe too.

    This cornbread does look really good, and I’d love the chili recipe also…My daughter just made a quinoa (pronounced KEEN -WA ) salad the other day
    with cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, oil, dill, salt, pepper and it was delicious…even better the next day…., it was our first time eating it and we both really liked it,,,,,suppose to be really good for you, can eat quinoa for breakfast also…just like oatmeal…..there is a red quinoa too, that we are going to try the next time….don’t really know what the difference is except the color is red……does anyone know and has anyone made it ?
