Cooked quinoa then baked until crispy. Great for salads or for a healthy snack.
This isn’t much of a recipe as recipes go. But it’s a great little condiment to keep around to add to salads, pasta, almost anything really – even yogurt. You’ve heard of Rice Crispies, I imagine. These are Quinoa Crispies. I just roast cooked quinoa seeds until crispy and pour them into a jar.
Feel free to lightly salt, or add truffle salt for a decadent tasting snack. Eaten alone, they almost taste like tiny, crispy popcorn.
It’s also a great way to add a little healthy protein to a vegetarian or vegan dish.
I haven’t tried them yet with a granola, but I’m thinking they’d be perfect. Lately I’ve been adding them to breadcrumbs, substituting half of the bread for quinoa. Later in the week I’ll post a recipe I’ve been making with quinoa crispies breadcrumbs and cauliflower. But until then, I urge you to make this condiment, stick it in the refrigerator, and find all the ways you can use it.
