I love to serve quinoa recipes because quinoa is one of the healthiest food out there, it is high in protein, high in fiber, containing about twice the amount of fiber compared to other grains. It is perfect for anyone following a gluten-free vegan lifestyle menu plan or a candida diet.

Here are some of my favorite quinoa recipes that are full of flavor:
