Adapted from a recipe seen on 101 Cookbooks, this is a spectacular, powerful boost to your morning whether you serve it warm or chill it down for a midday "pudding". Any berries can be used, I prefer strawberries or blueberries, or a mix!

Quinoa Pasta-less
Very Good 4.1/5
(7 ratings)

My family loves pasta salad for picnics. Since I haven't been eating pasta as part of my diet, I would just make it and do without. Well, for Labor Day, I realized I didn't have pasta and decided to use some quinoa I had in the pantry. This is tasty, nutty and HEALTHY!! Your family will most likely NOT miss their pasta. Add green and red pepper, chopped onion, small diced broccolli and cauliflower, cucumber and any garden fresh veggie to make even better!

Pearled CousCous Salad
(no ratings)

This is a great alternative to a traditional pasta salad. I estimated on amounts and serving size, as I tend to not measure and use a heavy hand with veggies additions. Tastes great cold and looks great on display (very colorful!).
