If you have leftover quinoa, this is simple way to change its flavor and texture. You’ll learn how to make crispy quinoa without any oil and a tip to ensure your quinoa gets extra crispy.
It’s best to use previously refrigerated, cooked quinoa. sexo In the refrigerator, the quinoa will have a chance to dry out a bit. If you use freshly cooked, hot quinoa, and try to roast it, the quinoa will continue to “steam” and become soggy and mushy.
Rinse and drain quinoa if buying from bulk bin. Quinoa has a natural coating called saponin that will taste soapy and astringent. Many packaged quinoa may have been “pre-rinsed”, which will save you an extra step.
In a small pot, add 1 cup quinoa + 1.75 cups water. The normal ratio for quinoa is 1 part quinoa: 2 parts water, but we’re looking for a slightly drier texture. This will make it easier for the quinoa to dry out while roasting to produce a crispy texture.
Bring to boil. Cover with lid, lower heat to lowest setting, cook 15 minutes.
Immediately uncover pot and spread out the quinoa on a baking sheet to let cool, and to let all the steam escape. Proceed below.
Preheat broiler and set rack to upper 1/3 position. Roast the quinoa for 5 minutes, stir quinoa and rotate baking sheet. Roast another 3 minutes, but check occasionally. The quinoa should be darkened, crispy but not burnt. Let cool a bit before tossing in the salad.
The quinoa can burn! Keep a watch on it. My burnt quinoa (still tasty, though)

This is a refreshing salad with a citrus-forward flavor. If you want to make it in advance, keep the dressing and quinoa separate until just before eating.
1. To make crispy quinoa: Position a rack in the top third of the oven and preheat the broiler to high. Spread the cooked quinoa onto the rimmed baking sheet. Roast the quinoa for 5 minutes, stir quinoa and rotate baking sheet. Roast another 3 minutes, but check occasionally. The quinoa should be darkened, crispy but not burnt. Let cool a bit before tossing in the salad.
2. To make the vinaigrette, add all ingredients to a mason jar with tight fitting lid. Shake vigorously until well combined.
3. To a serving platter, Add the lettuce, oranges, avocado, green onions, crispy quinoa and dressing. Toss well to combine and serve immediately.
Scott’s garden yielded a bucket of sweet potatoes and my raised beds finished the Spring growing season sputtering out the last of the kale and swiss chard. Summer is when we put the raised beds to rest – it’s just too darn hot to grow anything except hot chile peppers and okra (which sounds kinda good together too!)
We decided on making one of Korea’s most popular dishes, Japchae, or Glass Noodles. If you have friends or family on this or that diet, this is a dish that just might please everyone (well, except for meat-only eaters).
Dang Myung noodles are made from sweet potato starch, so they are vegan, gluten-free, paleo-friendly, dairy-free, soy-free and peanut-free. The back of every package that I’ve found at the Asian market states that the only ingredient is Sweet Potato Starch. I’m not so sure of that. There’s got to be some other ingredient in these noodles – can anyone confirm?
The noodles are stretchy, neutral flavored (duh!), slightly chewy and springy in texture. What they are great for is soaking up all of the flavors in the dish. Not much seasoning is needed because the noodles really act like a sponge.
The other thing these noodles are fantastic for is FOOD FIGHT! Because they are so elastic, you can flick your wrist and SLAP your opponents face with a tangle mess of stinging wet noodles. Watch the recipe video…and at the end and see how well this works. I let the boys go at it with each other!
But beware….10 Minutes of food fighting fun, 40 minutes of cleanup. But the boys said it was all worth it. My camera lens….not so happy. I got hit too!

The 15,000円（税込） key to this recipe is adding each ingredient separately – in the video, the sweet potato takes the longest to cook, so it goes in first.
Feel free to customize! Add mushrooms (add with the cheap oakleys onions); matchstick carrots or fresh spinach leaves (add them the same time as the kale/swiss chard).
1. Boil a pot of water (about 2 quarts). Turn off heat and add in the glass noodles. Let sit for 10 minutes.
-Kale/Swiss Chard: Fold leaves in half, tear away the leafy part from tough stem (discard stem). Cut or tear leaves into bite sized pieces.
-Dice the sweet potatoes into 1/2″ dice (the smaller you dice, the quicker it will cook)
-Onion: cheap football jerseys Slice onion into thin slices.
-Green Onion: chop.
-Finely mince the garlic.
3. In bowl, whisk together soy sauce, brown sugar and sesame oil.
4. If 10 minutes have passed for the noodles, drain the noodles.
1. Heat wok with cooking oil over medium heat. Add in the sweet potatoes and cook for 3 minutes each side. The sweet potatoes should be lightly browned, darker orange and just nearly cooked through.
2. Turn heat to medium-high and add in the onions. Stir-fry for 2 minutes, until onions become translucent.
3. Add in the garlic and green onion. Toss well and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
4. Add in the leafy vegetables. Use tongs to toss well and cook for 1 1/2 minutes or until the vegetables are wilting.
5. Add in the noodles and pour in the sauce. Toss well again to combine everything. Finish off with sesame seeds.
