  • Definitely takes longer than 12-15 minutes to cook. After about 15 minutes she took of the lid but I had to cook for another 8 minutes without lid. That’s with the 1 cup quinoa and 2 cup water ratio

  • Hey Kianoah is not the last grain used its still rice and some people believe that all there is to believe because a neighbor can’t come over! You know.Luckily in france both protugal and Spain can run even part spain with mountains, LOve thy neighbor doesn’t mean ETA Iraq because hitler boys kill even a hit leer. For I met them they dunn. They brooked and dunn.

  • Hey Sarah! Love this video, lots of inspiration & ideas here. But in Thailand, quinoa is pricey. So can you do more menus with barley? It’s really cheap here but I can’t find many recipes on YouTube that is not Indian-based (I also watched some of your barley recipes already). Thanks in advanced!

  • So, as a Type 1 Diabetic, insulin can be really, absurdly, criminally expensive. That’s why I have recently went keto, as the less insulin I take, the longer it last, and I get more bang for my buck. The trouble is, I’m having difficulty staying creative in the kitchen. Do you have any suggestions? Maybe you could do an episode on that?

    Either way, love the content, brother!

  • This is a perfect tutorial for ppl like me that want to eat more healthy but have never really tried specific things like Quinoa before. I feel more confident now and not like I’m gonna end up wasting my money buying it:) Keep up the good work!

  • I’ve always disliked salmon croquettes with the canned salmon. I may actually try your recipe since you used fresh salmon. Thanks!

  • Omg!!! I am in love even though I haven’t tried these recipes yet. I’m new to using quinoa, so I’m definitely looking for more yummy recipes, and I’m definitely going to try yours! Thank you.

  • I wanna try a quinoa pancake using a mix of fresh feta and parm, sauteed red onions or scallions, jalapenos and yellow peppers, shitake mushrooms, and roasted garlic. (with a cup of chicken vegetable or egg drop soup). Oh, YASSSS!!! ������

  • This looks so yummy! I think I’ll try the salad this summer, when I’ll get all the fresh summer fruits where I live:p I’d also like to try a veganized version of the quinoa cakes (I think I can replace the egg by some starch and water to help everything combine together, but I don’t have many ideas to replace the salmon… Any interesting suggestions?:) )
    Great video, as always, I love your channel!

  • I made the salmon cakes with canned salmon. I just broke it apart in the bowl and it worked perfectly. Made the dip too. It all tasted great. I highly recommend trying it.

  • I love quinoa! Awesome info your video is really good! I’m new at this doing what I love Cooking! I just subbed Lets support one another with our channels! #stovetopyumyum

  • Fun fact: Cooking Quinoa can make your kitchen smell like semen. My roommates talked about banning it for that reason in my last apartment. Lol


  • Hi Sara Lynn! I know someone has mentioned this before in the comments, but I just wanted to throw it out there again! It would be so cool to see a behind the scenes video of how you guys plan the recipes and film and edit the videos. I’m sure each video takes so much planning and editing-it would be amazing to see!!

  • All 3 look great! I’ll be trying the salmon cake recipe with salmon and then with shrimp this week! I’ve had cucumber dill yogurt sauce before but not scallion dill. Sounds interesting enough to try so I will:)

  • I never had quinoa how is it? Should I wash it before I cook it? I guess I better look into trying it. What size is that iron skillet your using Domestic?

  • Food network is lame. They need new “stars” like maybe you on your own show? Can’t stand some of the Food network stars. Guy is not chef and he has a jackass personality. And how much more can one want to see of Alton or Bobby? Geesh!

  • I love all of these recipes! I started making quinoa fruit salad last summer, when I found myself with an over abundance of fresh fruit….so good for breakfast! Most of the quinoa-phobes I know object to the texture (not as dense as rice) but I find that to be a plus, when making salmon/crab cakes and even meatloaf….thank you for the video!

  • It’s always a delight watching you cooking and presenting different types of healthy goodness food. I am learning a lot from your ideas and I will be getting the recipe book sometime sooner. Thank you for always being so deligent.

  • I added turmeric to my quinoa just like in the video, initially it was delicious, but afterward, it smelled so strong that I couldn’t even eat it

  • Thank you for the lovely video and also lovely recipes
    I wanted to ask you one Question,
    I have lemon �� allergy so instead of �� what can I use?

  • Your intro, wow. Do lots of people hate being healthy and hate superfoods? Who wakes up and says, “I think I will eat only unhealthy food today so I can get heart disease, cancer and diabetes”

  • A recepe includes what amount of ingredients. I’m still guessing on the water part. Was that to hard to figure out when making this video? This gets a fail. Sorry

  • Very nice video chef! I love the idea behind this series and I hope to see more of this in the future! (I should really start eating healthier haha)

  • I thought that Quinoa was just dull. But you proved me wrong. Thanks for having opening my eyes. Now it’s my time to try to make some recipe with it:)


  • You know, I never would have thought anybody could make me eat quinoa, but your video made me at least think about it and research it more. Turns out, I had compleely the wrong idea about it, and I will try it, especially as I do wish to get rid of my extra weight, and low carb sems to work best for me…

  • I like quinoa breakfast bowls. I start with a quinoa base, i add in either bacon sausage or ham. Roasted or sauted veggies like zuchinni or squash. I like adding fresh diced tomato too. Top with some cheese and a over easy or medium egg and its delish. The yolk mixes into the quunoa and makes it almost creamy

  • I am from California i am so happy today because I am free from herpes. I have been having this Disease since the past Three years now, and I have passed through many different processes in getting cured from the diseases of the Disease but nothing was working out. A friend of mine introduced me to Herbal Health Doctor called Dr OMIJIE, who sent me herpes Disease herbal remedy and my life get transformed and everything is fine and okay with me. Till now I have been going to check up and it is now going to four months and I am still negative…Thanks to dr OMIJIE, I will never stop telling the world about your good work..Contact dr omijie on Email:[email protected] gmail.com via WHATSAPP +2349056975097.

  • Great recipes! But while quinoa has a little bit more protein than rice (8 grams per cup for quinoa, whereas brown rice has 5 grams per cup), I wouldn’t exactly call it “protein packed” or a “great source of protein”, it’s still primarily a carbohydrate rich food similar to rice, potato, oats, etc.

  • To bring out the the power of turmeric, it needs to be combined with oil like olive oil or coconut oil, and ground pepper…. good for the body

  • Parsley,1 cup Feta chesse,1/4 lemon vingrette, pinch salt, pinch pepper, sauté red pepper, 1 cup dice tomatoes, 1 cup cucumber 😉 yummy

  • lol she forgot to tell how much quinoa can absorb how much water. People need the exact number like “0,2 l” because putting “2 cups” as a quantity into the description won’t help.
