The Benefits of Fiber in Quinoa


March 24th 2011By Suzanne Fisher RD, LD/N

As a Dietitian, I am constantly extolling the benefits of fiber. Fiber-rich foods not only fill us up, but also are essential to a healthy diet. Fiber can lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers. Daily recommended intake of fiber for adults is 25 grams for woman and 35 grams for men. Most importantly, especially during Passover, it can prevent or relieve constipation. One of the side effects of the dreaded “Matzo diet” is irregularity. It is a passing joke during the holidays, but can really put a damper on enjoying the holiday in comfort.

Roasted Tomato and Tortilla Quinoa Soup

I’ve had the inspiration for this recipe torn out of a magazine for a while – so long that I don’t remember where I got it from. I actually made quite a few changes to this recipe, because the first time that I made it it was a little bland for my taste. The final result, however, is spicy enough to warm up the chillest of afternoons!

This healthy and refreshing vegetarian salad takes advantage of summertime and its amazing products. It is hearty enough to fill you up, but still light so it doesn't feel too heavy. Feel free to add also zucchini, squash, edamame or carrots... The flavorful sweet dressing add some sweet to this savory preparation. The perfect combination of the soft mozzarella and avocados, the juicy tomatoes and the crispy quinoa creates a mouthwatering gluten-free lunch bowl.

Tthese quinoa stuffed potatoes do take a little time with baking the potato and all. But, they score big points with me because they can be made ahead and even frozen. I also like dishes that are super tasty for me, but easy to adjust to make kid-friendly. In the case of my boys, I left the artichokes and capers out and topped them with cheddar cheese.

Most commonly considered a grain, quinoa is actually a relative of leafy green vegetables like spinach and Swiss chard. Perfect for Pesach, quinoa is protein rich, has a fluffy, creamy, slightly crunchy texture, and a somewhat nutty flavor when cooked. Quinoa is available at your local health food store. Ask your Rav if you need to check through the quinoa before Pesach, to make sure that no grains have accidentally been mixed in with the quinoa kernels. I was told to check through it once before putting it away for Pesach use.


Quinoa Risotto with Butternut Squash

The inspiration from this dish came from clean eating, but the original recipe was more than a little bland for my tastes. It also had mushrooms, which we don’t eat. If you do, I would think that they would be really good in this dish. You can leave the goat cheese out if you are watching calories, but I think it would be a little bland without it.


Quinoa Pizza Dough

Quinoa Pizza Dough

January 16th 2012By Joy of Kosher

There are a few qualities that the serious pizza lover looks for in any crust. The outside should be crispy and browned, the inside airy and moist but with some chew and flexibility. These can be a little challenging to reproduce in a gluten free crust, but with the right ingredients it is possible to make a pizza crust every bit as good as a wheat based version! This recipe uses Quinoa flour to lend a great nutty taste and add some moisture to the dough. Supporting the Quinoa are Cornflour, Tapioca starch and Potato starch – a great combination in gluten free baking as they lend a little chewiness to the finished product without being tough or gluey like some gluten free breads can be. The sugar in this recipe helps with browning of the crust and adds flavor but it can be omitted, reduced, or substituted for another sweetener like honey. Make sure that the vinegar, cornflour and baking powder are all gluten free if baking for someone with dietary restrictions– all of these items can contain gluten.

Quinoa Falafel

Quinoa Falafel

October 31st 2011By Joy of Kosher

For reasons I can’t quite explain, I really love falafel. My husband would say that they are too dry, almost to the point of being sandy. But I have to say with the right sauce, I really enjoy them. Well…most of the time anyway. I agree that at times they can be way too try. My solution? To learn how to make falafel at home! Now first let me say that I am well aware that this is not a traditional recipe. Come on guys, it has quinoa in it! But stick with me here….because the quinoa had a great impact and one I wouldn’t have expected.

Persian Quinoa with Tadig

March 19th 2014By Tamar Genger MA, RD

This recipe is based on Reyna Simnegar's Sweet Rice with Orange and Carrots, made with quinoa so that it can be made for Passover and a healthy option any time. I made it with a layer of potatoes the first time, but if you want a crispier layer leave them out. Anyways, my kids fight over them, so it is better to make a separate batch of crispy thin potatoes.

Gluten Free Isn’t a Walk in the Desert Anymore


April 4th 2011By Chaviva Galatz

Matzo shmeared with deliciously fluffy cream cheese and some sweet preserves or jam is what Passover food means to me. That, and, of course, matzo pizza delicately baked and devoured within minutes. I haven’t been observing Passover long enough to really loathe the classic Passover treats, so I tend to find a sort of misplaced joy in these once-a-year concoctions.
