  • Love this one, Hilah! I just adore your channel. PS… I used to rinse mine as well but recently I bought my quinoa in a package vs in bulk from Whole Foods and the package actually explained that some companies put their quiona through a pre-rinse process eliminating the need for you to have to rinse it, thus making it ready-to-use. You may have been purchasing pre-rinsed brands.

  • try V8 instead of water and get a ton more of flavor. add spices-salt, pepper, allspice, and that would be dinner by itself, with or without anything on the side

  • Thank You for your clear instructions and healthy and pretty recipes! Very constructive, helpful, and just what I needed to know! Sincerely

  • I watched this and your video on cooking different kinds of rice, very simple and straightforward, thank you! Is there a chance you can do a similar video for different kinds of beans in the instant pot?

  • I’ve never tried quinoa before, but this recipe totally makes me want to try it!
    Once you make it, would you reheat the leftovers or is it good cold?

  • So disappointed to find she is not showing mercy for animals, Vegan is the only way forward, and the Quenda seed has all the nutritious you need,please stop adding animal product, thank you!

  • For the first one with eggs, I don’t eat eggs cuz they’re disgusting and not cruelty free. But you can make vegan eggs which tastes exactly like them. Just get extra firm tofu, cut it in half get paper towels and switched the heck out of it a couple of times. Then add turmeric, salt, pepper, garlic powder and nutritional yeast put in a pan with a tiny bit of oil and cook it it looks just like scrambled eggs. That had a handful of chopped up spinach. You won’t even know the difference! Protein rich and cruelty-free!

  • This recipe looks so good Hilah! Especially with the addition of orange juice in the dressing. Your spicy quinoa salad recipe has been my fave quinoa salad recipe ever since I made it years ago. It made me discover charred green onions!

  • Just started making quinoa and I did a similar recipe to the fried quinoa and Im in love with quinoa now. All the recipes here look amazing. I will be trying them for sure! Thanks��

  • You are so energetic ❤️ to very fast
    Have us true love to cook Quina thank you for presentation is
    Great as well as cook.��������
    Zucchini rice.

  • Me: making rice caserole
    Me, casually to my family in the safety of my own home: I should see if theres a quinoa version of this.


  • You are H I L A rious!!! ���� Your videos cheer me up and recipes are simple and amazing too! Will be making this tomorrow! Thanks ��

  • Quinoa with spinach, garlic, chia, basil, parsley and salt, cooked with water..it pretty good. It is a side dish for me.
    I will try Tangy Thai Quinoa..it looks good

  • To rinse, or not to rinse quinoa? I’ve found it depends on what brand I buy…..with some, rinsing makes a big difference. A matter of trial and error. I like red quinoa for salads..just because I think the red has a more robust flavor….love this salad. Now if the weather would warm up….

  • Thanks this recipe is so delicious ��. I only had 1 cup of quinoa so that what I worked with. I put 3 cloves
    1/2 cup of red diced onion
    1/4 cup diced red pepper
    1/2 cup tomato
    I used 1/2 tsp of Chili flakes, 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp tandoori masala
    2 tbsp of cranberries
    1 cup of coconut milk
    1 cup of vegetable broth
    1/2 tbsp olive oil


    Thank you for sharing your talent

  • Hi I really like way U showed how to cook quinoa. But in my case I bought mix quinoa white, black, and red. so can u tell me what the megerment I can do it.

  • I cooked quinoa but it’s grain r still intact. They didn’t fluffed up. I boiled them.for 4-5 hours but still the same. I even steam.cooked them but still no hope. What to do?

  • Sweetie, the recipes are fine. Your facial theatrics, however, are annoying AF. Please stop.
    Being less “Isn’t this the most amazing sh!t ever?!?” and dialing down the bobbing eyebrows and over-the-top dramatics in your on-camera presentation will get you more likes and subs. Nobody likes a Looney Tunes housefrau.

  • They,’ve said such wonderful things, that I don’t know what to say. Everything is being said. Well esplained, well every thing! I am definitely going to try it. I have two boxes Hime, my niece gave them to me and I did not know what to do with them, but thanks to your genius idea, I am saved! Thank you so much for sharing.

  • I never rinse my quinoa, either. It’s just extra work, and you can easily kill off the bitterness by cooking it in chicken/veggie stock, anyway.

  • Thanks for the info. I bought a mixed bag of white, red and black quinoa, how would the cooking times differ in this instance? Thanks again.

  • You know when you think you have a handle on reality and the world you live in? Yeah. Then Hilah says “ASMR CHEWING WEIRDOS…” and I had no idea… so I did a search. I am now confused by reality. Thanks a LOT.:O I love Keen-Wah, Quinoa… I am absolutely going to try this ree-sipe. Yes, I will crunch… but no I won’t “relax” to a recording of it. I really do love good quinoa… and this looks great.

  • You are awesome Hilah! Can’t wait to try this especially since I want more protein and veggies in my diet! Btw thanks for leaving out the blue and indigo.:)

  • you look a bit like Jennifer Carpenter, also thx for the vid, havent watched it yet but the comments are very reassuring! i have a tricolored quinoa to cook:D

  • Made the Thai spicy quinoa tonight and wow that was delicious like you said add some Chicken or Shrimp to it. So, I added some Chicken. Low calorie and super healthy…����

  • I made the Chinese fried rice and it was sooo good! Next up the cheesy quinoa! Curious though do you suggest a non sugar substitute for the Thai quinoa recipe. I have a chronic inflammation condition where I can’t do any type of sugar (cane or even artificial sweeteners like stevia). Wonder if I could put in ginger and coconut aminos to sweeten it up instead of honey. Thoughts?

  • The first bowl looks incredibly delicious!! Thanks for making it easy for us and giving us many options. After I watch your videos, I get the grasp of things and play around with the dish sometimes!

  • With your singing, you should be on a stage. I believe there’s one leaving town in an hour. LOL

    I’ve gotten totally bored with quinoa, and this looks like a great excuse to get interested again! Lots of flavors, and lots of interest. I “discovered” radicchio a year or so ago, and I just love the stuff in salads! I’ll have to give this a whirl!

    Showing my total ignorance of all things vegan, I never even knew you were supposed to rinse quinoa. Glad to know it doesn’t matter.

  • Awesome! Quinoa is delicious! What if you made some of the dots on your wall the orange color of your old counters to accent and bring back the memories lol

  • A vegan recipe. Yesss! I have yet to eat quinoa, I’ve seen it next to the rice and beans but have not experimented with it. I think i would place all that tasty looking salad into either fried corn tortilla shells or a LARGE double-flour tortilla and promptly inhale that. Looks really good.

  • Hilah, really love your videos! Your videos are always so enjoyable and relaxing. It’s truly a pleasure to have you around. Thank you for sharing this recipe and I’m sure every time I cook this recipe, there will be a little Hilah singing in my head��

  • I usually love it when you sing because you don’t try to make it perfect and play with your not pitch perfect voice. The song usually sicks but that doesn’t stop you and us from enjoying it. Keep singing.

  • I cannot have any of these as I have bowel issues & have had to go on the low FODMAP diet, low in fermentable chemicals. Please would you make some recipes that are low FODMAP friendly? I get desperate for something tasty. You can look up all the details online from Monash University. Please.

  • I love radicchio in my salad! It never tastes bitter to me though…hmmm. Very pretty salad with all those colors! Will give this a try soon!:)

  • Hi, Hilah. That salad looks really impressive. Your singing is quite good. You are a genius when cooking healthy recipes. I have a question: how many recipes do you make in a week? Please let me know. Have an awesome day, Hilah.:) ������

  • Would the salad dressing still taste good if I replaced the peanut butter with almond butter? or what is another alternative that I can use in place of peanut butter?

  • I’ve finally learned how to cook quinoa. I was having a lot of trouble cooking back quinoa and gave up on it a long time ago. I’ll attempt it again soon. Thanks!

  • Thank you so much for your tutorial! So clear and concise with the important steps specially reiterated. �� I have failed twice before watching this video. My quinoa got burnt, overflowed from the pot and it gave me a phobia about cooking it again. Lol. But thanks to your video, I finally succeeded in cooking quinoa over the stove and achieved the right texture! Cooked it with coconut milk and salt, yummy!:)

  • I love your recipe, I love your simple amazing cook, and how you explain it, but please, be a bit slow in your words, sentences, pictures, 5 minutes explaining are not the enough time for teaching something new,….thanks for your good understanding

  • Could you please jerk your hands around a bit more, if that’s possible? I don’t speak or write a bit of English, so I need a lot of reinforcements for every syllable so I can comprehend.

  • I don’t rinse quinoa because of bitterness. I rinse it because inevitably, if I don’t, I end up with really nasty gritty dirt in there and it ruins the whole dish. 8(

  • i literally love your recipes, i tried tangy thai yesterday and i couldnt believe the taste. and im planning to make another one tomorrow that is in another video one skillet quinoa recipe

  • Quick question, if I’m cooking white quinoa in an instant pot like you said however I’m cooking 2 cups instead of 1, do I still cook it for 1 minute or double to 2 mins?

  • So the proportion is 1 cup quinoa to 1½ cups water for red quinoa? Unfortunately when I tore off the top of my resealable bag I tore off the cooking instructions.

  • I also have been cooking red or black quinoa for 1 hour or more and doesn’t open. not sure why, i left then in water overnight, boil for hour or something…and still hard. no tail. any advice?

  • subscribed )) subscribe my channel too plz))����interesting videos Hello, a new friend here. I hope you’ll send the love
    back to me by visiting my channel and also clicking the buttons especially the
    red one. waiting for you there.thanks stay connected.

  • you ruin it by adding the fluids of some boiled animal to it (i.e. broth). see if you can make it good and bursting with flavor without adding dead animal parts or fluids
